Happy (belated) World Telecommunications Day May 24, 2008Posted by Matsu in Humor, Information Technology, News and politics, Technology.
I don’t know how this slipped by me, but last week at this time (May 17th) was the annual World Telecommunications Day. It seems strange to think that it occurred without proper recognition, so while I may be a week late, let me say, “Happy World Telecommunications Day, everyone!”
Why was one week ago, May 17th, chosen to celebrate world-wide telecommunications technology? Because it’s the anniversary date of the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention in 1865. And, because that’s what the United Nations decided to do in General Assembly Resolution 60-252.
So, mark you calendars for next year and remember to celebrate World Telecommunication Day on May 17, 2009.
