Yesterday, July 1st, was National Postal Worker Day. In this day and age, and especially in networking, It's easy to forget how information is communicated outside of the electronic world. The estimated 490,000 postal workers in the United States, however, have some of the most unfavorable working conditions of any profession. Postal workers walk an average of 4 to 8 miles a day, six days a week, carrying full loads of letters, magazines, and packages. They are often also required to work through extreme temperatures and weather conditions. While this national observance is over until next year, we celebrate any opportunity to appreciate our community postal workers and all the hard work they do to keep us connected to one another.


Did You Know

65 years ago, today, in 1953, IMB announced the 650 Computer series, the world's first mass-produced computer. Information in the first 650 computer was stored on a rotating magnetic drum and was programmed in conjunction with punch cards to receive and translate data. This bi-quinary computer's memory could store numbers up to 10 decimal digits. 


Have a great week and keep networking!
