it’s a little known fact that edgar allan poe was a big proponent of networking and AAA-based network access, which is why the standard for delivering electricity through a network was named PoE (a backronym for Power over Ethernet), as well as having a family of authentication protocols named after him - EAP (Edgar Allan Poe), a backronym for Extensible Authentication Protocol.

Poe is also known for writing an RFC beginning with “Once upon a midnight’s dreary, as I crimp so weak and weary”.
