Inventions of the Millennium

in sep 1999 i (and lisa aka mooncalf) created a puzzle for the equinox word games party. at the jul 2000 npl convention, i gave out copies of that puzzle as a handout...

here's the puzzle (as a PDF), and here are the annotated solutions (as html). don't peek!

note that even if you finish the puzzle, the solutions are worth reading to find out about when and how all the items were invented... enjoy.
