Mary Had A Little Lamb

Happy birthday to Thomas Alva Edison (1887-1931)

Nicknamed "The Wizard Of Menlo Park" which was where he lived in the now re-named Edison, New Jersey, Edison is one of the most celebrated and influential inventors of all time. With a total of 1093 patents awarded, here are some of the most important devices he is credited as inventing: 
  • Electricity Distribution 
  • X-Ray Machine 
  • Motion Picture Camera 
  • Kinetoscope (Viewer) 
  • Quadruplex Telegraph 
  • Two-Way Telegraph 
  • Incandescent Light Bulb 
  • Carbon Microphone 
  • Phonograph
The phonograph, along with the microphone, are the very foundation of my profession and are just two of his many inventions that made life as we know it today, possible.

Soundtrack For Today: “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” – Thomas Alva Edison, Harper’s Monthly (Published Sept. 1932)

Words to live by and the blog entry title refers to the first words recorded by Edison on his first invention - the phonograph.
