Five Centuries Of Information Technology
Five Centuries of Information Technology:
The First Town of the First State at the Cutting Edge
We live today in a highly interconnected world. It was not always this way, yet the information and communications technologies that connect us in 2013 find many of their roots in the times that Lewes and the surrounding areas were first settled. The settlers and even the first residents of Lewes, Sussex County and all of Delaware have leveraged the benefits of information science and technologies from the earliest points in our history. Lewes, Cape Henlopen and Sussex County have had a strong innovative spirit starting even before the days of William Penn, who gave Lewes and Sussex their names. It’s within this spirit we investigate how this special region of America embraced and still embraces the entrepreneurial spirit made possible by information technology no matter what the age.
