From humankindís earliest days tools were key to survival. From the first engineers to today, technology has driven us to new heights, and many cultures have shared in this endeavor. This lecture will explore many of these contributions and showcase the acceleration of technological innovation through the millennia to today. Contributions of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and others, through the Dark Ages to the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and the Information Age, the Biotechnology Era and other critical revolutions of today, will all be discussed in a lively format, placing various inventors in their times..

There's a great productivity feature that seems to be a great secret, whether you're working with Windows, MacOS, or Linux. If you only ever do one thing at a time on your computer, you can skip this, but if you're frequently juggling lots of open windows for various projects, here's a way to work more effectively. Virtual desktops (also called spaces or workspaces or virtual displays) allow you to organize related windows into independent compartments, and all it takes is a few clicks or keystrokes. Iíll show you what it can do for you and how to set it up to do it.
