Tuesday

Al Gore addressed the International Telecommunications Union on this day in 1994.  He said, "The Global Information Infrastructure will help educate our children and allow us to exchange ideas within a community and among nations."  President Clinton had asked Vice President Gore to handle the "information highway" thing.  Republicans called the "Internet Thing" another example of the Democrats Tax-and-Spend waste.   Within four years, the "Internet Thing" would be what it is today: our lifeline to information, both true and untrue.
