The Internet was born.
And it did crash!
On October 29, 1969, a team assembled in 3420 Boelter Hall to attempt to send the first message to Stanford Research Institute: "LOGIN." They managed to type in the first two letters before the system crashed. So the first message sent over what would become the internet was "LO."

I was saddened to hear today of the passing of musician Bob Casale , one of the fab four of that most unique group DEVO. He dutifully and solidly anchored the DEVO rhythmic beat, whether on guitar or synth, while the more flamboyant DEVO brethren whipped us into an uncontrollable urge.
I was fortunate to see DEVO for the first time just one week after their historic appearance on Saturday Night Live, back in October 1978. They literally rocked my world, and my world view.
I always considered Bob Casale the “Mr. Potato Head” of DEVO, the everyspud who represented the mutant in us all. No matter the costume or jerking back-and-forth themes, Bob was resolutely and reliably DEVO through and through.
Thank you for the DEVO beats, Bob 2! The beat goes on!
In 2010, the Casale brothers joined Jian in Studio Q to talk about their life's work, Whip It and the serious message behind their surprising act: http://youtu.be/vgWTqkGgeOM
Fascinating article on the development of optic devices such as television that were "... designed for pursuing supernatural research - for visualising the invisible and showing the subtle forces at work in everyday life."

Yowe is an Ogre Kachina, who is a deity of certain Hopi Warrior Clans, having powerful inner spiritual responsibility to punish including taking of life. During the Pueblo Revolt in 1680, the Indians of New Mexico and Arizona revolted against the Catholic Church in an attempt to retain their religious freedom. Legend states that a Hopi named Yowe killed and beheaded a Franciscan priest. After this incident, the Hopi referred to Yowe or the Priest Killer as an Ogre Kachina that had the power to punish others.

Me: What possible reason could there possibly be to not buy an inflatable sumo suit?
Wife: I don't even know.
pause long enough worth mentioning
Wife: Maybe if it smelled overwhelmingly of cheese? Like too much cheese.
