Spring 2014 MOTD

A STEM Moment

STEM is a stock symbol of StemCells Inc. STEM is also the buzz-acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. The following subject line was seen in the "Headlines" section of the STEM webpage for StemCells Inc. at It's time to stem the loss of STEM graduates (via, Sun. Jul 6).

This is the 51st edition of the MOTD. The Spring 2014 MOTD has been added to the MOTD archive.

The MOTD blog was named after the /etc/motd file used on Unix systems. Unix systems are multi-user systems and SysAdmins use the /etc/motd file to communicate messages to users upon log in.

I should let the MOTD die, but I can't. This 17-year-old blog could be deleted using one command-line: rm -rf $motd

The MOTD suffers from a severe case of linkrot (i.e. broken hyperlinks), but from day one the MOTD was considered a WORM (Write Once Read Many) resource. What you read on the MOTD is what I posted and the linkrot provides a picture of just how much the WWW has changed over the last 17 years.
