Sad day for Telegrams

It seems Western Union sent their last Telegram back on Friday. The technologies been around since before the Civil War.

While it won't be in use at Western Union, I wonder if anyone else will pick it up to use it for something innovative. I know it's "just" sending telegrams, but it seems like a pretty large nail in the coffin of analog technology--something I actually want to avoid.

I guess I'm going to have to move "Learning Morris code" back up to the top of the list. Don't want to see another good technology drift into the unknown. I'll put it right under "Sheep Shearing..." :)
