Measdays on the Net
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
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
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
