3 Sending messages: electricity

  • Stephen Robertson (author)
The new medium of electricity gives us new opportunities: the telegraph, the printing telegraph, the telephone, then radio, and later email and text messaging, bringing us into the modern age. But the first of these steps would not have been taken without the alphabet, and the consequent possibility of codes like the Morse code.
