Gutenberg really the original tech disrupter?
is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow
inexhaustible streams...Through it, God will spread His Word. A
spring of truth shall flow from it: like a new star it shall
scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore
unknown to shine amongst men
~ Johannes Gutenberg
printing press is a mechanical device for applying pressure to an
inked surface resting upon a medium (such as paper or cloth),
thereby transferring an image. The systems involved were first
assembled in Germany by the goldsmith Johann Gutenberg in ca.
1439. Although both woodblock printing and movable type printing
technologies were already developed in ancient China and later
Korea in East Asia a few hundred years prior, they did not use a
press like that of Gutenberg. Printing methods based on
Gutenberg's printing press spread rapidly throughout first Europe
and then the rest of the world. It eventually replaced most
versions of block printing, making it the most used format of
modern movable type. As a method of creating reproductions for
mass consumption, the printing press has been superseded by the
advent of offset printing.
