Leonardo - Charles

Of all things I can be labelled, the one I prefer –by far- is “Engineer”. It sounds pretty much old-fashioned, but day after day I feel more in line with engineers that with anyone else, I love their ingenuity, their passion, and their drive to pursue impossible goals. The Inventor of engineering was –by most views- Leonardo Da Vinci. I discovered Leonardo’s work at the Italian exhibition in Seville’92 Universal Expo. What I saw there was simply astonishing. You can find out more about Leonardo here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci and http://www.mos.org/leonardo/

However, Leonardo is not my most favourite historical figure. It is British scientist Charles Darwin, whose evolution’s theory has incredible implications not only in natural sciences, but also in social sciences and –of course- in business. Now a new website has been opened, it contains the largest collection of his writings. Discover it here: http://darwin-online.org.uk/
