Today is Thomas Alva Edison’s Birthday

Today is Thomas Alva Edison’s 164th Birthday (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931)

He was an American inventor, scientist, and businessman who developed several devices that significantly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed “The Wizard of Menlo Park” (now Edison, New Jersey) by a newspaper reporter, he was 1 of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and big teamwork to the method of invention, and as a result is frequently credited with the creation of the initial industrial investigation laboratory.
