We have a tendency to lionize mankind’s mind-bogglingly complex inventions. It’s why we teach our children about the Alexander Graham Bells and Thomas Edisons of the world, and scour the Internet for every little iPhone rumor we can find. But sometimes, it’s the simple technologies that truly change the world. Think of what pasteurization did for public health or what mechanical clocks did for, well, time. These unheralded inventions maybe don’t appear incredibly complicated at first glance, but they nevertheless improved the lives of countless people.
Special Donation Drive:
DEAR READERS: today we ask you to help the Rudolf Steiner Archive, the host of this site. We survive on small donations averaging about $13 and a yearly grant. Only a tiny portion of our 30,000+ daily readers donate. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraising would be done within an hour. That's right, the price of a cup of coffee is all we need. We're a very small not-for-profit company with costs of a very large website: bandwidth, servers, and equipment. The Rudolf Steiner Archive is something special. It is like a public library where we can all go to learn and grow. If the Rudolf Steiner Archive is useful to you, please take one minute to keep it online and serving the world. Thank you, everyone! — The e.Librarian.
