The period between 1867 and 1914 remains the greatest watershed in human history since the emergence of settled agricultural societies: the time when an expansive civilization based on synergy of fuels, science, and technical innovation was born. At its beginnings in the 1870s were dynamite, the telephone, photographic film, and the first light bulbs. Smil is a great story-teller, weaving in technical details about the individual inventions with the broader picture of overwhelming and rapid technological change. A  Due to the format of the B of A email, and the copious amounts of "filler" statements they use; the series is a bit difficult to follow. Keep Wikipedia handy.) Smil demolishes the image of Edison and other inventors as brilliant geniuses who created their invention through tinkering.
A  I usually write correspondence to fit the lowest common denominator, but how low can one go?A  Although I'm willing to bet that if I reverted to primal grunts, and what could be considered a primitive, yet well understood gesture even in our modern world; that someone on the other side of the Banking Center counter might have their mind bulb flash, if only momentarily. He shows that the technical innovations of this time were grounded in a revolution in science, and that scientific theory often preceded the development of new inventions. One of the markers Smil gives for this "Age of Synergy" is the publication of Capital in 1867, " a muddled but extraordinarily influential piece of ideological writing." But I actually think Capital is a great companion volume to this book, or this book to Capital.
Capital places these extraordinary changes in the context of the development of the accumulation process.
The drive for accumulation pushed capitalists to increase the productivity of labor (electric motors, electric lighting, steam turbines), create new products (new fertilizers thru the Haber process), and speed up global transportation and communication (the internal combustion engine, telephone, radio). Smil hints at these connections all over place, like when he describes how electricity and the electric motor revolutionized factory production and increased the flexibility of production design by eliminating steam-driven belts.

Technically oriented people who are not themselves mechanical or electrical engineers will probably find themselves longing for more detailed explanations of how the various described inventions actually functioned.


I have a few of my portion of the email, as I cut and pasted it into my regular email service; don't know how they lost theirs.
The author assumes a fair bit of background knowledge in these areas, going so far as to reproduce drawings from patents with minimal comment, seemingly with the expectation that the reader will understand the devices described without further elaboration. They relate to the Merlin Teller, and how a fully paid balance of mine is being carried on their books as an outstanding balance on their system for months after I paid the account in full, probably sometime in October of 2007. The book is densely written and could probably have benefited from a heavier editorial hand (to clear up some grammatical confusion and correct errors in some of the figures).
I was repeatedlyA  told this same information by various B of AA  staff that I spoke with in person, numerous times, in various locations, but I did not record the conversations and wish that I had. Nonetheless, it has much to offer readers who are interested in the history of innovation and engineering, especially the global or "holistic" view of how the use of money, energy, and time changed so dramatically in the 19th and early 20th centuries as a result of technical advances, and how these transformations still form the core of modern Western society.Clogs Mar 28, 2016A facilitating read but also a very deep and long read.

A  Bank of America?A  I'm almost on their side for this particular incident; as I know that avoiding lawsuits and payouts is high on their priority list.

Unless some staffer slipped up, yapped out my private account activity, and didn't take time to note it in my file.

Rose, Good afternoon and thank you for contacting Bank of America in regards to account documentation. For B of A to be carrying its customers former credits and debits on their books for 16 plus months would be an accounting nightmare, in addition to being out of compliance with several Federal Banking Regulations.
