Three Cheers for Movable Type and One of Its Key Inventors

Over at Orson Scott Card's fun LDS project, The Nauvoo Times, I've offered a post on a topic I feel deserves more reflection and gratitude from all of us: movable type and the invention of the mass produced book. See "Movable Type and the Blessings of the Printed Word." There's a quiz there. Let me know how you did!

The Chinese invented many things that others improved upon. The Chinese were "first" in many things. I especially love the cobalt blue and white porcelain. Many people do not know just how much stuff came from China, other than gun powder. Thanks!
