" its been a long road to get from there to hear"
Technology is an interesting thing, from dragging our knuckles trying to walk to launching a Tesla into space we have come along way.
That being said you may have of read at some point one of my favorite comments, "I'm an Analog signal in a digital world" So with that I give you my version of Technology.
Fire Thanks to Hominids 1.8 million years ago
The Wheel Thanks roughly to the Mesopotamians around 3500 BC or 5,100 years ago
Writing with paper and pencil and pen. Paper thanks to Cai Lun a Chinese inventor around 100 A.D.; Pencil thanks to Swiss Conrad Gessner in the 1500's and the pen thanks to Romanian Petrache Poenaru in or around 1827.Last but not least the pencil sharpener invented by France's Bernard Lassimonne and enhanced my That fat cat Garfield.
Technology is awesome, but it's nice to look back and remember what things and who we have to thank for it.
