Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I must say I am impressed with your artwork, however I must agree with Tom. A little more thought would have gone a long way. If inventors qualify as scientists then more appropriate choices could be found.
    1. Armstrong the true inventor of radio.
    2. Gutenberg inventor of movable type.
    3. Franklin inventor of bifocal glasses, fire departments, lending libraries and after proving lightning was electrical, the lightning rod.
    Bell had one invention. Edison had two, after the stock ticker and gramophone he started an invention factory.
    A list of scientists should include such notables as Galileo, Copernicus, Lyden, Volta and Curie. I must commend you on the inclusion of Grace Hopper, someone who never sought fame for her contributions to computer science. She was a good friend (and mentor) while I was in the service. She is missed.
    Anyway, if you come up with an “improved” version I would like to know.

    Edison shouldn’t be there.
