On May 24, 1844, Samuel F.B. Morse dispatched the first telegraphic message over an experimental line from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore. The message, taken from the Bible, Numbers 23:23 and recorded on a paper tape - “What hath God wrought!”. 

The telegraph’s long-distance application marks the beginning of a new era of communication, in which information can travel faster than any human by any means of conveyance. Since that moment it doesn’t matter where we are, we are constantly connected to everyone on earth by underwater cables, telephone poles, radio towers, internet exchange points, and many other things that we don’t really notice. It is this invisible force that keeps us connected.
