This May 2015 the International Telecommunications Union reaches its 150 Anniversary, http://itu150.org/home/ .
So what has happened in the world between 1865-2015? I thought I would highlight some events that usually go under the radar:
- football clubs established at that time : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldest_football_clubs
- some cyclists have been pedalling for a really long time : https://velocipedists.wordpress.com/
- as well as a bygone era in railway : http://talyllyn.co.uk/150-1865-2015Gala
- Nokia started out as a wood pulp mill : http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia
For more well known events just search the world wide web (www).
The ITU plays an important global role producing technical reports, recommendations and guidance on telecommunications, cellular and satellite, to name just a few technology sectors. That influence should never be underestimated. Indeed, the work of the ITU impacts on mobile forensics and cybercrime too. I have recorded a few trewmte blogs as examples.

Cybercrime: procedures, deterrent and investigation
It seems to me fitting that since I have gained so much knowledge and understanding from the work of the ITU that to pay tribute to them is to invite readers to visit their website celebrating the 150 anniversary of this phenomenal and great institution known as the International Telecommunications Union:
