St Izzy’s Day

izzyToday is the feast day for St. Isidore of Seville (Proposed Patron of the Internet by the Roman Catholic Church). Bob has the corner on why they voted for Izzy. Personally, I have always considered George MacDonald (father of modern fantasy) to be the patron saint of the internet. But then that’s just me.

Info on Izzie from from Bob
“The Vatican’s Observation Service for Internet, which drew its mission from the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, researched the Internet and related technologies to select a patron saint that best reflects the concerns and ideals of computer designers, programmers and users. The saint chosen by the Observation Service was Saint Isidore.”


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.
