Brian - I don't think that I'd consider electricity an invention.
It existed in nature and was therefore discovered.

There have been many inventions to generate & distribute electricity and I think that's what you mean - yes?

I was going to post up the very excellent joke about a Doctor, an Engineer and a farmer being asked that very question, but I decided to answer truthfully. My decision to go with what I feel is partly because I was actually pondering this very question Monday night at work and I think I actually have a good answer when you consider the world changing device this became. Google it, or Wikipedia it after this and you may agree...or not.

I owe my belief and discovery to Merc07 (Thanks Adam!) because I was reading his thread on software for the 16M ECU and I got sidetracked into the technical reading...as I often do.

My answer: The transistor.

Don't let Randy know that I've got some British in me...he'll parlay that into some F4/B4 commentary!

I agree with free internet porn...different Birds, those.
