"Houses are connected by means of magnetic telegraphs that allow people who live far from each other to communicate. [...] The thing is that many households here publish such journals that replace common correspondence. Such journals usually provide information about the hosts' good or bad health, family news, different thoughts and comments, small inventions, invitations to receptions. [...] The job of publishing such a journal daily or weekly is carried out by the butler." —from Prince Vladimir Odoevsky's novel, Year 4338
Hey, wait a minute. You mean Al Gore didn't invent the Internet?!
