Did you know once in history it was decided that everything that ever will be invented has already been invented? It’s true.
“Charles H. Duell was the Commissioner of US patent office in 1899. Mr. Deull’s most famous attributed utterance is that ‘everything that can be invented has been invented.’ Most patent attorneys have also heard that the quote is apocryphal.”.
That being said, they said it at the end of the nineteenth century, they will say it again! But alas, more things and technology will come along – not at a “stead” pace, as you ask, but in jerks, leaps and bounds, stalls and stumbles!
