Fun Fact from the Past:
I worked for Netscape Communications Corp back in the 1990s. The only remaining digital evidence is a posting from rec.humor.funny which shows the email address I had back then (by far the coolest that I have ever had, frankly: drjoe@netscape.com): http://www.netfunny.com/rhf/jokes/97/May/notgold.html
 
Somewhat Random Fun Factoid: 
I was the first Esperantist to suggest translating "world wide web" into Esperanto and, in the ensuing discussions, was apparently the first to use the now-currently-accepted short-hand form "TTT", although the exact T-words being abbreviated have been changed by subsequent usage. Translating "world wide web" (WWW) into Esperanto. In soc.culture.esperanto, May 1994. Reported by Don Harlow (in Esperanto), 'La Historio de TTT' [The History of TTT], at: [http://groups.google.be/group/soc.culture.esperanto/msg/f1796db95c377fea]
 
Fun Far Future Extrapolation:

Serious Futurist/Astrobiological/SETI Extrapolation:
I want the Square Kilometre Array and the Breakthrough Initiative to take a seriously closer look at PGC54559 Hoag's Object (see image) for possible signs of artificiality, or artificial (i.e., intelligent) activities: http://arxiv.org/abs/1412.4011/
