    We took our youngest son and his wife to Edison's winter home in Ft. Myers. It is fascinating how far we've come thanks to this man. It's unbelievable the inventions he gave birth to.

    I think "things" are more pervasive because of advances in technology and increased information and wealth.

    But as we discussed before, it's all rubbish compared to "Our One Thing."

      I think you're right that "'things' are more pervasive because of advances in technology and increased information and wealth", but that effect has been rolling nearly unimpeded since writing was invented.

      A friend yesterday said we tend to only think of electronics as "technology", which keeps us from seeing just how much even the invention of paper changed civilizations.

      And I think it would have been pretty cool if my parents had taken me to Edison's house. Nice parenting!
