Edward Kennedy, internet pioneer

A Slate staff member twitters that Edward Kennedy was the first member of Congress to have his own web page:

If you look closely, you'll see that the site was hosted at MIT. This is about 1994, before there was anything like a or Google. I think that was also the year I bought my first PC and learned to use the internet - until someone called me on the phone and broke the connection.

One of the comments links to this blog post which has more. Betcha didn't know all that.
