To celebrate the 500,000 hit count mark, I joined the Internet Society (see http://www.isoc.org) and made plans to start a Chicago Chapter of the Internet Society.  None exists at the present moment.   I am doing this with the help of some other friends colleagues.  For more information, e-mail me, or go to http://www.isoc-chicago.org .

The Internet Society is one of the most important organizations in the world for advancing the causes of Internet education and Internet improvement.  And the organizations which comprise the Internet Society, such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (http://www.ietf.org) have played some of the most important roles in creating and evolving the Internet and the technologies which make it possible.    The IETF's logo is shown below. It has to be one of the coolest logos in the world:

See the chart below for timeline of Internet Evolution and the organizations which were there, making it happen.

If you are not already involved in the Internet Society, I encourage you to join and become involved.  The Internet will play a key role in many areas of our society and economy now and in the foreseeable future.  Become part of one of the world's most important societies.  Join today!!!

By the way, in case anyone is curious, I am providing the statistics for my website which were tabulated the day my website went over the 500,000 hit count mark.  Check the bottom of the page for the report.  The statistical collection program is called analog2.11/Unix
