Thursday, May 31st is National Smile Day. It's been said that it takes a greater number of muscles to frown than it does to smile, but the exact number of muscles is up for debate. Some say it takes 22 muscles to smile, while others say it takes 17 muscles. Whatever the correct number, I think most can agree that it feels better to smile than frown, so use this day to smile and take that new selfie to use as your new community avatar photo.  saycheese


Did You Know

This Friday, June 1st, in 1999, Napster was released. As a simple way to copy and distribute MP3 music files, it became an instant hit. Six months later, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed a lawsuit against the service for mass copy copyright infringement. The lawsuit will eventually force Napster to shut down in 2001. With a large adoption by college students, high-speed networks in college dormitories became overloaded with 61% of external network traffic consisting of MP3 file transfers from Napster. As a result, many colleges blocked its use.    


Have a great week and keep networking!
