Trust me, I work for the Government

High Tech Maine Network Services

Dedicated to Bob, Dave, Duncan, John, and the rest of the bunch that never gets the credit for keeping the State of Maine’s Network running. They may not be the face of IT in Maine but they are the brains that keep it going. With apologies to the men and women I may have left out.

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire datingback 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed in California, an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet.Shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: “California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.”

One week later, the Kennebec Journal, a local newspaper in Maine, reported the following:”After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near West Gardiner,Kennebec County, Maine, Bubba Mitchell, a self-taught archaeologist and graduate of Colby College, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Maine had already gone wireless.Thank God for Bubba.Who said Mainers were hicks?
