Great Innovations in the Past Century

Posted February 17th, 2011 by Andrew Goodman

1921: Insulin discovered.

1932: Prototype atom smasher gun invented in California. Unfortunately does little more than chip away at particles, leaving nuclei intact.

1939: First atom definitively smashed by scientist in Berlin.

1965: Moore’s Law posited. One of Google’s co-founders later refers to it as a “management innovation,” primarily, because Intel would create a corporate infrastructure dedicated to living up to this “law” of rapidly increasing processor capacity.

1970: Pepsi introduces the 2-litre pop bottle.

1985: New Coke.

1998: Google founded.

1999: Swiffer launched, ending humanity’s futile struggles against household dirt.

2009: Zynga releases Farmville, eclipsing the capacity of previous entrants Farm Town and Barn Buddy to facilitate time-wasting at work.

2010: Soft drink companies release beverages in “tiny” 7.5 oz cans. Original Coke bottles were tinier, however, at 6.5 oz.

    I think the Snuggie and the Forever Lazy should be somewhere in this list… (my god we live in exciting times)

  2. Apologies for leaving out the Snuggie, and the Snuggie for Pets. It’s just for stuff like this that I hope they don’t turn all the Zellers into Target. I’m sure you’d pay more at Target.
