Monday Madeleines – In the Beginning

by Mistina Picciano on July 15, 2013

Everything starts somewhere, so we start this week with a look at the origin of the Internet’s conceptual space, sliced bread, word meanings and turtle shells. Today is “Cow Appreciation Day.” All the more reason to eat more chicken. Have a great week!

The Hut Where the Internet Began
Before the technology was possible, there was the Memex. Thanks Jonathan Greene (@atmasphere) for this look at past imagination.

A Brief History of Sliced Bread
Sandwiches were never the same. What was the best thing before sliced bread, Esther Schindler (@estherschindler)?

The Original Meanings of Everyday Words [VID]
No more Mr. Nice Guy. Thanks Buzzfeed, (@buzzfeed) for the amusing insight.

The Origin of the Turtle Shell: Mystery Solved
Hopefully, one day we may get the answer to how birds evolved from dinosaurs. Alton Parrish (@nanopatents) thanks for the fascinating tweet.

Video of the Week
Yes. Goats in a tree.
