Ok...just a momentary thought of boredom that I'd like to share with you. We have come a long way in communication. Or have we?
A century ago, the primary form of long distance communication was via Morse Code. A message, or "data" would look something like this:
.._ _ ...._ _ ...._ ._ .._ _ .._ _ ...._.._..._ _.._ ....
Today, in the Digital Age, a "message" or "data" looks like this:
Dots and dash's and ones and zeroes.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
