Greatest things since the wheel...

Greatest things since the wheel...  This is a self-styled list of the 50 greatest innovations since the wheel.  It's a collection of opinions from a panel of 12 experts, so it reflects their knowledge and biases – but it's an interesting and plausible list.  I'm no expert on any of this, but I'd have chosen a few others myself (for instance, the development of pesticides).  I'd also love to see similar lists with specific criteria – such as the 50 innovations that saved the most lives, or that created the most wealth.
