    Entrepreneur Walk of Fame in Kendall Square

    Actors have Hollywood Boulevard; athletes, the hall of fame. And now, for the people who blazed the trail for personal computing, there is the Entrepreneur Walk of Fame.

    Inventor Thomas Edison, Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates, Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, Lotus development Corp. founder Mitch Kapor, Genentech co-founder Bob Swanson, and Hewlett Packard Co. founders Bill Hewlett and David Packard, have been memorialized underfoot in granite stars on Main Street, outside the Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel are in the first class of inductees.

    Who do else do you think should be added? What do you think of these nominees?

    How can Edwin Land not be the first name put down ?

    He is #2 to Edison in pattents.

    Start carving his name in TODAY !

    Someone didn't do their homework if he did not get there first.

    Sadly, most people will not recognize the names Richard Bolt, Leo Beranek and Robert Newman. Yet these three men and their Cambridge based company BBN (now a division of Raytheon) developed numerous technologies that revolutionized several different industries.

    Ring, Ring. Ring, Ring....

    I'm not quite sure how you can create a memorial to innovation in Cambridge and not include Alexander Graham Bell, who invented our modern telecommunications system (and made the world's first phone call) from his office on Main Street, the very same street where these new stars are being laid down. Come on, guys- read your local history!!!!
