#16 - "Gearing Up"

#19 was the compass! You guys (Milt, Mike, Elaine, Peyton, Tony, Michelle, Joani and first time responder and photo-friend, Steve T.) are goooood!! 

"Gearing Up

Just shot last Friday (8/31) at Slater's Mill in Pawtucket, RI. The buildings housed a plethora of milling machines over one hundred years old. Interestingly, kids "manned" these machines working upwards of sixteen hours a day! 

Perhaps, I'll pull a few others from this most recent shoot - fun day photographing America's industrial past!

Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.

Like the lever (No. 48) and the abacus (No. 43), it augmented human capabilities.

The history of #16 as a mass-market consumer electronic device began with in the 1980s by the International Business Machine Co. They developed such a device for individual use.

After the development of the microprocessor, #16 was low enough in cost that they eventually became affordable consumer goods.

No clues this week either! Much too easy. . .
