    I used to live across the street from Philo Farnsworth, inventor of television in Fort Wayne Indiana.

    • I bet he had some stories to tell and antiques to show. I met an IBMer that worked on the first missile guidance systems. I could have listened to him for days. Hard to believe it was all mechanical.

        Philo was never home when I was there, but I spent some time in the house with his son Kent. Philo was however the only one to have a gull wing Mercedes in his little garage :). Well deserved!
