Instant, worldwide communications have become so integral to the modern world, that we sometimes forget what an absolute miracle it is. Think about it: With just a few clicks of our mouse or trackpad, we can dictate a message (we don’t even have to type anymore!) and send it at the speed of light to just about anybody on Earth. One of the best ways to appreciate this technological marvel is to celebrate World Post Dayeach year on October 9. That’s the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union, and it’s from this humble wellspring that the global communications revolution started and continues to this day.
