Start Somewhere

How can you get a simple start on your project?

In 1867, C. Latham Sholes read an article about a new machine for printing letters. Inspired by the article, Sholes started making an experimental machine in his Milwaukee workshop. In 1868, he and two co-workers patented a typing machine that had eleven keys and typed only capital letters. Over the years, Sholes designed and built dozens of typewriters, each an improvement on the one before. A manufacturer purchased one of his more practical designs and the typewriter caught on, changing the business world forever.
