from Ray Bradbury. Back in the 90s he was quoted in American Way magazine (American Airlines) saying: When the Smithsonian asked me to conjure up a technological history of America, I simply replied “Garage.”
“Come again?” they said.
"Build me garages in a vast, scientific vaudeville hall. Then invite your museum visitors to open the garage doors one by one. Open the first and find two bicycles repairmen putting wings on a super-bike and flying it down the Kitty Hawk sand dunes. Fling wide the second and see Henry Ford climbing out from under his pet road-mobile. Third garage door? We’re in California, and we find a pale young man with a mustache drawing a cartoon mouse. Fourth “garage”: a gaggle of Caltech students in Pasadena horsing around with rockets to start the Jet Propulsion Lab. And fifth: Steve Wozniah in a Silicon Valley back-yard garage seeding Apples and harvesting communications. So many garages, so many toys, so many earthshaking devices."
