Mark Twain, Internet Inventor

Mark Twain
You thought Mark Twain restricted himself to quirky regional tales of fence-painting and Mississippi rafting? Think again. In his short story ‘From the London Times of 1904’, Twain writes of a telelectroscope that enables unlimited communication around the world. That’s right, the internet. To be fair, a room full of typing monkeys would have also come up with the idea given the time, but Twain got there first.
