Columbus Day is a chance think about where we came from and where we're going, whether or not you're of European decent. Legend held for quite a while that he was the "discoverer of the new world." As history unfolds even further, history says he wasn't the first, but his timing right to give Europeans a new hemisphere to explore. As the AT:HT staff takes the day off, we'd love to hear about how our work here on this site has introduced you to a "whole new world" of home technology that's expanding before our very eyes, and what's interested or surprised you most as we've traveled on this journey. Also, let us know in the comments what home technology innovation has changed your life the most. - Image of Columbus Circle, NYC, by 416style.
