So I have mentioned this series to some, but I thought I would post it for all of you. The series is called Connections: an Alternative View of Change. The series was done in the 70s by a guy named James Burke and discusses how the technologies that we take for granted come about. He refers to technology as an interdependent network of inventions that build on each other. When one piece of the network is removed the network falls apart. Attached is the first 10min segment of the first episode. There are ten episodes in the series and I think most are on youtube. Enjoy
