This day in art/science history

Okay, technically it was last Tuesday, I missed it, I’m sorry. WIRED news has written a great article about the development of the daguerrotype, with co-inventors Daguerre and Niepce publicly debuting the how-to of the technology on August 19, 1839. And for all you history buffs, if you scroll to the bottom of the article you’ll see a collection of “history of the photograph” articles, from polaroids to high-speed photography. What better way to while away a Friday afternoon while waiting to get out and take one’s own pictures.
