GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 17th September at noon SLT: What if some inventions were never made?


Come to GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT and let’s ask what the world would look like if certain inventions were never made, or certain events never happened.  What if no one invented the wheel or writing?  What if there was no industrial revolution?  No steam engine?  No internal combustion engine?

Were some things invented too early or too late to be used?  Were some good inventions rejected because they were not fashionable?  Can you think of any inventions that were needed but never made?

Or perhaps you think that inventions always happen if they are needed.  What inventions do we need now?

Come and discuss how different the world could be.  Bring your history books and your friends!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
