Affair of Thoughts! Faulty Perceptions of Legends
The human species has produced brilliant minds which changed the whole world and mankind. Such as Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Galileo, etc. But is it true that they were always right? Even the most brilliant minds can sometimes get it very, very wrong. I am sure that you won’t believe how wrong the perceptions of these legends were once.
1. Lord Kelvin
2. Scientists Didn’t Know What Goes Up When Things Burn
3. I Bet If This Theory Would Have Been True None of Us Would Have Been Alive
4. Western Union, What Were You Thinking?
This was an internal memo of the Western Union in 1876. I am sure they lacked foresightedness.
5. Warner Bros
We all know what they do. But you won’t believe how wrong they were about their own profession only.
6. Bill Gates
I think the name is enough. No need to introduce Bill Gates. But how can he get it so wrong?
7. New York Times
I think ‘New York Times’ lacked the basic knowledge ladled out daily in high school – that is to dream and dream big.
The IBM Chairman, 1943 would have been fired soon after this statement.
9. DEC – Digital Equipment Corporation
One of the great computer manufacturers from 1950s to 1990s. You were wrong. There are a thousand reasons to have a computer at home.
