It was interesting to read how technology progressed and to think about the imaginations of those people who initiated change and led others in that same direction. The common threads:  strong work ethic, willingness to take a chance, hunger for a challenge, goal setting, perseverance, the ability to think on their feet and seemingly fearless in facing change.
