Did you know that the lightning talk was invented on July 3rd, 1922 at the Saint Paul World's Fair?
Midway through a 4-minute PowerPoint presentation about the aerodynamics of the Spirit of St. Louis, Charles Lindbergh was interrupted by a five year old boy, who demanded his autograph. Lindbergh graciously paused his talk and signed the little boy's airport terminal.
That little boy's name? Steve Jobs.
