BEACHI remember in the mid-nineties when I did my national service in the northern part of Nigeria. Then the major means of communication that was readily available was through writing of letters. Sadly, it normally took a total of about six weeks for my letters to arrive Lagos and for me to get a feedback 🙂 You can imagine how life was then and what I passed through 🙂

Today, all that has gone  with the sands of time. Big thanks to the great minds that has made global interaction very easy, fun and economical. Today, the world has been turned into a global village where distance or cost is no more a barrier, in reaching out to friends, colleagues and business partners.

In this post, I have captured fifteen of those awesome inventions which have changed the way we communicate and interact. In addition, I have also added the names of those great individuals behind these innovations and the dates they were founded.  No doubt, a lot of us only use these awesome creations without bordering to know who invented them or when they were invented.

I hope you will find my compilation very revealing….
