On June 23, 1868 a patent was granted by the US patent office to C Latham Sholes, Carlos Glidden and Samuel Soule of Milwaukee. While you would likely be familiar with its modern counterpart, the device itself sees very little use today.

Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:00am (ET) (or whenever we get around to it) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.
