[random][geek] End of a technological era

iStockPhoto - Copyright Bryn Donaldson As of yesterday, 27 Jan 2006, Western Union will no longer send telegrams. (Surprised? Evidently, the telegram isn't quite extinct yet...) One-hundred-seventy-five years, plus or minus a decade - longer than the rotary phone, eh? Not a bad run for the telegram; I wonder if the internal combustion engine'll last as long.
