DARPA created the Internet. Now the Internet was not formless and empty, but there WAS a lot of darkness over many of the sites therein.
And Denise Nesbitt said, "Let there be ABC Wednesday,” and there was ABC Wednesday. Visitors from all over the world saw that ABC Wednesday was good, that it attempted to avoid the darkness.
And Denise said, “Let there be simple rules and guidelines about people participating with ABC Wednesday linking to ABC Wednesday, following the alphabetical theme for the week, and visiting others." And it was so. Denise saw that it was good.
But Denise said, "It is not good for me to do this all of this organizing and visiting alone. I should seek out helpers, a team to share responsibility for these visits." And it was so.
Now, the ABC Wednesday meme is starting its lucky 13th round, starting with the letter A, and you are invited, not only to contribute to ABC Wednesday, but, if it would please you, to visit others, and even scribe some of these introductory essays.
