Werner von Siemens
I made the spark from clay.
I turned it upon the wheel,
Thrown and shaped with tools,
Brought to it the light and crackle,
With little resistance or conductance.
I cranked up the Roentgens,
Sat exposed in the open,
Absorbed the storm
To make my will...
The world.

Donatello, Italian sculptor of the renaissance, died on this day in 1466.

Werner von Siemens, German electrical engineer, inventor and industrialist, who founded the German telecommunications business Siemens, was born today in 1816.
