Given that this is bikeforums... it must be the Bicycle, of course!

Compound interest has also been given that distinction.

This is easy. Science.

In the larger sense, civilisation is our great invention. But science is the pointy
end of the stick.

Btw, the internet is one of those technological revolutions. And Al Gore played
a crucial role shepherding the technology. Ask the guys who acutally built the internet. They love him.

I grew up hearing the greatest invention was the wheelbarrow. It got the Irish off all fours.
