TODAY IS INTERNAUT DAY
The internet is the newest great frontier, a place where every new innovation creates a new virtual world deep within the web. While space will always be the final frontier (Except for those brave souls who consider death the last great adventure) the internet will always be a growing and expanding frontier. Internaut Day celebrates those men and women (and those without a binary identifier) who have helped to build the great frontier that is the Internet.
