Ideas are those interesting things which pop into our head, sometimes when we donít expect them. Occasionally, they have a major effect on our life and on the lives of others.

Imagine for a moment, how magic and wonderful it was to hear sounds from a radio set when there was no electricity.

Here is a strip of metal [steel]. It has been formed into a coil, placed on a series of steps and gravity took over as step by step it slinked down. It was marketed as a childrenís toy or novelty and called a slinky.

Trevor Graham Baylis CBE (born 13 May 1937) is an English inventor. He is best known for inventing the wind-up radio. Rather than using batteries or external electrical sources, the radio is powered by the user winding a crank for several seconds. This stores energy in a spring which then drives an electrical generator to operate the radio receiver. He invented it in response to the need to communicate information about AIDS to the people of Africa.

The interesting idea about his invention was that it was not complicated. It involved Common Sense and the application of that Common Sense to provide a simple inexpensive and workable solution to a compelling human need.

The inspiring truth is that within everyone of us is a potential Trevor Graham Baylis ready to move our common human race by using the philosophy of Common Sense.

Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee OM KBE FRS FREng FRSA FBCS (born 8 June 1955), also known as TimBL, is an English computer scientist, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. He made a proposal for an information management system in March 1989 and implemented the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and a server via the Internet around mid-November of that same year.
