He boasts an eight-length win over Samuel Morse

Focusing on the influence of the first electrical communications media--the telegraph and the telephone--on the structure of the US and the political economy, he traces the development that shifted the telegraph and telephone from specialty services for exclusive clientele to mass services, and the period ranging from Samuel Morse

<i>Years from now, when historians reflect on the time we are currently living in, the names Biz Stone and Evan Williams will be referenced side by side with the likes of Samuel Morse
