133 Years Ago TODAY, 10-March-1876, WATSON COME HERE!
- I forwarded my earlier posting on today's Chicago Tribune article on
Caller-ID Name Errors (BTW, that posting was NOT sent to Yahoo:Strowger,
Yahoo:Coldwarcomms, nor Yahoo:TENproject), to some telephone company
retiree contacts.... and one of them emailed me back, reminding me
that today, the 10th of March, is the 133rd anniversary of the
telephone itself, when on Friday 10-March-1876, Alexander Graham Bell
successfully transmitted speech over an electrical line, when he called
"WATSON, COME HERE! I NEED YOU."
(or maybe it was ... "I 'want' you" ???)
