LeGrand Lockwood, Early Adopter

Back in April I gave a talk at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, Connecticut. They’ve done a very nice exhibition about the technology of the day, focusing on some of the remarkable technologies Lockwood put into his 1864 home. My talk focused on what Lockwood and others of his generation thought about the future of technology. Lockwood was an early adopter and investor. Others were more cautious. Some rejected it, others saw utopian potential.

The gimmick for the talk was to have LeGrand Lockwood tweeting in response. It worked – got some good laughs.

You can see the whole talk here:
