Light Bulbs for Change – How the Electric Light Bulb Changed the World

Life styles have been completely changed by the electric light bulb. It has had an important effect on how we interact socially and culturally.

Years ago using natural sources such as candles, firewood, and lanterns were typical ways to provide light in dark areas. Today, there are cities around the world that light up at night because of illumination from the light bulb. Billions of people have come accustom to the light bulb that they could not image life without it.

Since the birth of Edison’s incandescent light bulb and others like it of that day, electric lighting has undergone much change. We’ve completely departed from the bulbs of the 1800s, except for in those adorable, hipster coffee shops where they like to hang industrial Edison lighting. A torch or anything that could hold a bright flame use to be our only way to light a room or to walk about in the dark of night.

When the light bulb was developed it was quickly found in millions of homes around the world. The light bulb brought so many possibilities and new inventions that have changed the way people live over the years. The light bulb is responsible for various types of growth including jobs, products and the economy.

The light bulb we know comes in different shapes, sizes, and watts. It turns our homes into a winter wonderland during the Holidays; that or a misguided adventure of Christmas lights between laughing children and their disillusioned parents.

The light bulb has played an important role in the development of various types of products essential for living such as flashlights, headlights for vehicles, and assisting in functioning of various types of medical devices. The bulb is inexpensive with new variations being created to help consumers save on energy costs. Providing light to complete necessary tasks such as reading, cooking, medical procedures, manufacturing and more is a significant contribution to society we take for granted.

Even though this wee bulb has gotten up in years, being a major player for over 100 years, it continues to effect how people live today. From our late night reading, to early get-ready-for-work marathons, we look to the light bulb to provide us with
the sufficient light energy to help in accomplishing necessary tasks. Thanks to the light bulb, when the sun goes down, our lights stay on.

Let it be known that we were at first tempted to go with the “how many people does it take to screw in a light bulb” jokes for this posting. But the truth is it only takes one; your electrician. So out with the jokes and in with some ‘light’ reading.
