In December 1995, Sailor held a “Golden Spike Ceremony” to mark the completion of a statewide telecommunications network that enables Marylanders in all 24 counties to access the Internet without charge from libraries, home, offices, schools, and kiosks in several shopping malls. Governor Parris Glendening said, “Sailor levels the playing field….This will enable people to meet their information needs more efficiently and to explore this amazing new means of communication.” Then he pounded a railroad spike into an enlarged map of the Sailor Telecommunications Network, amidst the cheers of the many people who helped implement the project thus far.
