    I would pass along an article right up your alley:

    Yep, all the best minds of the last 500 years were nothing but hacks and their work was stolen from the proletariat.  Who would have thunk it?  

    (For those that aren't quite following this relatively poorly received diary, there is little doubt that humans build upon the knowledge of prior or contemporary humans.  The question is who improves the human condition more and the diariast wants to argue that the line worker improves it more than the inventor who dramatically improved the light bulb, the computer or any other technological invention.)

    Were these innovators angels?  Hardly.  They were quite human.  But they were instrumental in advancing the human condition far more than the average people who were lucky enough to be hired to fulfill the promise of the innovators.

    We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein
