This entry will mark the start of my series of "On This Day In Tech History" in which I will briefly review notable happenings on any given day throughout history in the tech world.
On this day in 1922: Inventor and Nobel Laureate, Guglielmo Marconi, begins regular radio broadcasting transmissions from Essex.
On this day in 1946: ENIAC, the world's first electronic computer was dedicated at the University of Pennsylvania. Fun fact - ENIAC stands for Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, and it was roughly 1000 times faster than the other computing machines of it's time.
On this day in 1995: The arguable best hacker the world had ever seen, Kevin Mitnick, was arrested by the FBI on charges of wire fraud and breaching the computer systems of many corporations - among them were Motorola and Sun Microsystems. Fun Fact - Since his release from prison, Kevin has become a leading expert in the field of cyber security and heads a company named KnowBe4 that provides security awareness training to business and corporations.
