It may as well be 1000 years ago, but it’s 132 years ago to be more exact: the anniversary of when Thomas Edison received a patent for the mimeograph. With our weakness for nostalgia, we couldn’t resist running this shot of employees of Vermont’s state purchasing department using mimeograph machines in 1959. It makes us wonder if 132 years from now — when, we’re guessing, we’ll get all of our programming and information through the blink of an eye — there will be an antiquated picture of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin arguing about computer science before they joined forces and proceeded to change the world.
