it wasn't a bad article ... i guess.
the world is all about data now
i keep seeing those virginia slims ads " we've come a long way baby"
sure we have, and it cost alot...

the author got a few thing wrong. Jacques-Mandé Daguerre didn't invent photography in france
he commercialized it, just like eastman didn't invent roll film, he stole someone else's idea
and commercialized it. the first kodak's didn't cost 1$ they cost 3 month's wages
when he ( eastman ) was sued he nearly lost everything.
