Graphic showing World Information Society Day

According to Wikipedia:

World Information Society Day was proclaimed to be on 17 May by a United Nations General Assembly resolution, following the 2005 World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis.

[1]

The day had previously been known as World Telecommunication Day to commemorate the founding of the International Telecommunication Union in 17 May 1865.[2] It was instituted by the Plenipotentiary Conference in Malaga-Torremolinos in 1973.

The main objective of the day is to raise global awareness of societal changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the Digital divide.”

I think that sometimes we have become so used to the extraordinary things we can do with Therap that we forget just how much we are changing the worold and society for the better.  With over a million T-logs being written each month, and on average each one being read 12 times, information is being shared like it never was before.

Who could have imagined parents and guardians having instant access to their loved one’s data?

All around the country states and providers are harnessing the power of Therap and the internet to improve supports and prevent the wasting of resources.

Congatulations, take a step back, look at yourself in awe, and celebrate!
