  5. The iPhone

    Surprisingly, Uncle Sam played an essential role in the creation and development of the iPhone - of course, much has been written about the late Steve Jobs and other leading figures at Apple and their role in making the modern icon, and its subsequent impact on our lives. And rightfully so. But who are other key players without whom the iPhone might have been little more than an expensive toy? Tim Harford tells the story of how the iPhone became a truly revolutionary technology.

  6. The Shipping Container

    The boom in global trade was caused by a simple steel box. Shipping goods around the world was – for many centuries – expensive, risky and time-consuming. But 60 years ago the trucking entrepreneur Malcolm McLean changed all that by selling the idea of container shipping to the US military. Against huge odds he managed to turn ‘containerisation’ from a seemingly impractical idea into a massive industry – one that slashed the cost of transporting goods internationally and provoked a boom in global trade.

  7. The Haber-Bosch Process

    Saving lives with thin air - by taking nitrogen from the air to make fertiliser, the Haber-Bosch Process has been called the greatest invention of the 20th Century – and without it almost half the world’s population would not be alive today. A 100 years ago two German chemists, Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch, figured out a way to use nitrogen from the air to make ammonia, which makes fertiliser. It was like alchemy; ‘Brot aus Luft’, as Germans put it, ‘Bread from air’.

    Haber and Bosch both received a Nobel prize for their invention. But Haber’s place in history is controversial – he is also considered the ‘father of chemical warfare’ for his years of work developing and weaponising chlorine and other poisonous gases during World War One.

  8. Decoded Chats – Paul Bakaus on AMP | Decoded Blog

    Paul Bakaus (@pbakaus) is the “Voice of Chrome DevTools, AMP and Open Web Games at Google”, was previously the Studio CTO at Zynga and is the creator of jQuery UI. HE blogs at his “sea of ideas” at paulbakaus.com.

    In this edition of Decoded Chats, Chris Heilmann took a whole 50 minutes to take Paul on a deep-dive of Accelerated Mobile Pages, or AMP – a new and rather creative way to deliver content on mobile devices in a very secure and fast manner. As with every format competing with HTML, this brings a lot of worries and confusion, many of which we discussed here.

  9. Internet history is fragile. This archive is making sure it doesn’t disappear | PBS NewsHour

    What’s online doesn’t necessarily last forever. Content on the Internet is revised and deleted all the time. Hyperlinks “rot,” and with them goes history, lost in space. With that in mind, Brewster Kahle set out to develop the Internet Archive, a digital library with the mission of preserving all the information on the World Wide Web, for all who wish to explore. Jeffrey Brown reports.

  10. Restoring Sanity to the Office

    Basecamp CEO Jason Fried says too many people find it difficult to get work done at the workplace. His company enforces quiet offices, fewer meetings, and different collaboration and communication practices. The goal is to give employees bigger blocks of time to be truly productive.
