Measdays on the Net

Somewhere, Somehow
Australia
Canada
Europe
Great Britain
Mid-Atlantic USA
Southwestern USA
Elsewhere
Genealogies
Architects of Civilization

I gathered these links using various WWW search engines. David Measday, the physicist, is cited far and wide on the Internet, so I only list his home page. Mark Measday, being involved in all things Internet-related, is hard to miss on the web; his home page is well worth visiting. Stephen Measday, the Australian writer, is all over the Internet, too; one of these days, I'll order and read some of his books!

Some of the links have gone stale since I began keeping this list; I update them when and if I can, but, for their name's sake, I don't delete anyone whose last remaining link has disappeared.

My apologies for any mistakes in the things I say about people I don't know; please feel free to correct me!

The Last Word

I'll give the last word to the family philosopher, Mark Measday, who pointed out in an Internet-related discussion list how Measdays, over the centuries, have more or less saved the world and civilization as we know it (links added by me):

In respect of my own defining nomenclature, which I had always assumed a Saxon joke or a weak attempt to redefine the calendar, I made the surprising discovery recently that not only did a lot of Measdays get thrown out of Europe (deported to Australia for free-market activities, emigration to the free world for the usual political offences), but that they prospered, abolishing slavery with Mr. Lincoln, setting up the League of Nations with Woodrow Wilson, etc., apparently with a standing invitation to play poker with Vint [Cerf]. (Check with Alex Measday at NASA and Roy Measday the Measday genealogist, both online). However, I take this on advisement from them.

[In explanation, (i) there is a questionable relation to Abraham Lincoln's mother on my mother's side of the family, (ii) my great-grandfather was press secretary for Woodrow Wilson, (iii) I made a joke about playing poker with Vint Cerf (father of the Internet), and (iv) I used to be a subcontractor at NASA!]
