European Innovation

From a reader:

Your article raises a good question — what WAS the last European innovation you wouldn’t want to live without?

I really had trouble with this, so after a few minutes without anything on my list, I Googled “list of European innovations.” I think that everything we need to know about the state of innovation in Europe is supplied by the search list results and the fact that the fifth-highest listing is this:

Top 10 Inventions of the Middle Ages

The next Google link after that one is this:

1st European Innovation Summit

Yeah, that’ll fix it right up…
