Today in History: Two communications firsts achieved, 1884 and 1899
On March 27, 1884 — 131 years ago today — the first successful long-distance telephone line between New York City and Boston was inaugurated, and the dream of uniting the world through copper wires for instant communication began to become more clear. Prior to this particular 235 mile (378 kilometers) long distance line, there had been lines between (1) Lowell and Boston and (2) Providence and Boston. (The New York City to Boston line was not opened to the public until September, 1884.)

On March 27, 1899 — 116 years ago today — the first successful wireless transmission via radio waves took place between France and England across the English Channel. Marconi was trying to interest investors in his radio invention, and he was hoping a demonstration of wireless communication across the English Channel would interest the French government. As Rowland F. Pocock writes in The Early British Radio, “Marconi had not over-estimated the publicity value of the cross-Channel link. This first demonstration of international radio telegraphy brought a rapid rise in the Company’s quotation on the stock market.”

Seat belts were invented by English engineer George Cayley in the early 19th century,[1] though Edward J. Claghorn of New York, was granted the first patent (U.S. Patent 312,085, on February 10, 1885 for a safety belt). Claghorn was granted United States Patent #312,085 for a Safety-Belt for tourists, painters, firemen, etc. who are being raised or lowered, described in the patent as "designed to be applied to the person, and provided with hooks and other attachments for securing the person to a fixed object."

Bikes might seem like an intrusion on the roads. But roads wouldn't exist without them.

Another episode of Computer Chronicles from 1993 about the internet. It is funny how the various reports in this episode sound like reports of some alien, though possibly bright future.

1993 was the time I started using the Internet in the university, reading RFCs, read Linux kernel code to understand TCP implementations, compiling ncsa webserver, communicating with other universities what they use to implement CGI scripts ...

This is particularly interesting as it contains interviews with people that early on got the internet, such as +Howard Rheingold.

This hydrodynamic quantum analog demonstrates deBroglie's pilot waves as an explanation for electron interference in Young's double slit experiment. Or as I recently put it, how electrons can tell the future and know the easiest path to take

A droplet bouncing on the surface of a liquid has been found to exhibit many quantum-like properties, including double-slit interference, tunneling and energy quantization. John Bush For nearly a century, “reality” has been a murky concept. The laws of quantum physics seem to suggest that particles spend much of their time in a ghostly state,…
