Food for Thought

While this show focuses on digital technologies, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that technology only recently defaulted to mean digital.

He was a prolific inventor but in a bout of irony all of his inventions were lost when the library of Alexandria burnt to the ground.  More on pumps: https://www.fireresearch.com/frcnews/archives/63
