Back in 1988

Network World’s 7th annual collection of the year’s “25 Geekiest 25th Anniversaries” includes the invention of Doppler Radar, the introduction of IBM’s AS/400, the scourge of the Morris worm, the publishing of Stephen Hawking’s "A Brief History of Time", as well as “America’s Finest News Source:” The Onion. Also, there was the addition to the lexicon of the phrases “global warming” and, sorry, “eating your own dog food.” When done feel free to take a look at the first six installments of this series: 2012; 2011; 2010; 2009; 2008; and 2007.
