Six years ago at the blog -- old tech April (stentor edition, 1907)

It's a shame "stentor" didn't catch on

One of the conclusions I've come to after digging though the history of 19th and 20th century technology is that when there's a real demand for specific functionality, it will express itself as soon as (and sometimes even before) the technology is viable.

Today's example: the news broadcast.

From Scientific American 1907/06/22
