Yesterday was LEGO’s 50th birthday, or rather the anniversary of the patent
approval for the original brick. Joel Johnson has more at Boing Boing
Gadgets, including a timeline of LEGO technology advances. From LEGO.com:


The LEGO history began in 1932 in Denmark, when Ole Kirk Christansen
founded a small factory for wooden toys in the unknown town of Billund
in the south of the country. To find a name for his company he
organized a competition among his employees. As fate would have it
however, he himself came up with the best name: LEGO – a fusion of the
Danish words “LEg” and “GOdt” (“play well”).
