Engineered Eloquence

Think Critically, Write Things Down, Repeat

Yet Another Idea Left

February 10, 2015

Fascinating profile of the man that invented the basis for the current prevailing battery technology, lithium-ion. He has a great outlook on life, a (secret) new great idea, and a great laugh. At 92, he is still doing amazing things and should be a testiment to all those that believe there is a time limit on child-like curiosity.

Lexi’s great-grandfather’s birthday was a few days ago and he would have been 99. He was still sharp as a tack and definitely ambitious at the time he died just four short years ago. His ambitions were not of a scientific nature, but he lived in his later years, as he did in his younger years: full of curiosity and vigor.

I hope I am able to be as interesting as these two men as I age.
