We Are the Web

This gets a little "tech-y," but it's a really interesting article about the history of the web and how we never could have guessed what it has become. It mostly talks about how we, the general populace, are the driving force, the content provider, the heart and soul of the Internet. Well worth a few minutes of your time.

Cool off at Wacky Wyatt's

Hope everybody's having a great summer and you're surviving our sweltering CNY heatwave. One way to help cool yourself down is to get over to Wacky Wyatt's in Baldwinsville this Friday July 22 for good food, ice cold beverages, and a really cool band (the MEB, of course!). We play early (7-10 or so) and it's a very family friendly place, so bring the kids along and start them early on their MEB indoctrination.

See you there!

Mike, Jeff, Steve and Paul
