Question of the Day

Aug 28, 2014

Yesterday's question asked: Someone once said "I am reported to be 'pessimistic' about broadcasting ... †[but] the truth is that I have anticipated its complete disappearance, confident that the unfortunate people, who must now subdue themselves to'listening-in', will soon find a better pastime for their leisure." Turns out he wasn't right, but who was he? That would be H.G. Wells, of course!

Congratulations to Zach Hiner for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to Paul BoydKen WalkerPaul DelColleAdam RichterHiram ReisnerJason HenselShantee' Woodards, and Rachel Roh for getting that right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: Who was named TIME's first "Person of the Century?"
