Thread: Louis Daguerre's 224th birthday

    Louis Daguerre's 224th birthday

    Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre was born 224 years ago today, November 18, 1787. Google has created an icon (today only) in his honor.

    Oddly, November 18 is also my birthday, although I am only a fifth of his age.

    Don't worry, in another few hundred years you'll be half his age :-)

    That says a lot. Doesn't it?
