There are so many to cover, but I'll bring them up throughout the month as I make some time to post. But one of the earlier companies in this web we love was called Network Solutions. They were the 1st and sole domain name provider to offer .com, .org and .net. domains. The company was co-founded by an African American Emmet McHenry. Network Solutions was a significant commercial enterprise that was at the very start of all business opportunities and presence on the web. Possibly too early for many or most to realize. Happy #BlackHistoryMonth
