Today we celebrate the birthday of Alexander Graham Bell, born on this day in 1847. Bell invented the telephone (among other things) and was the founder of AT&T. (He also has some less-than-noble elements in his biography, such as his involvement in the eugenics movement. Yuck.) If you make or receive a phone call today, remember Bell. And just think what phones might have been like if they’d been invented by a guy named Buzz.
