story time

23Mar08

it went a little something like this:

“there is an old story about Thomas Edison.
Henry Ford was visiting Edison one day,
and found it hard to push open the front gate at Edison’s yard.
When Ford chided the world’s greatest inventor about his rusty gate,
Edison replied Ford had just pumped a gallon of water out of the well!”

– no new ideas, just new implementations.

When visitors came to his house, they passed through a turnstile that had to do enough work to raise a gallon of water to Edison’s roof holding tank.
