RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Google image search on "american inventors" (people only) - RF Cafe

Here is a version with only people.

When doing some research for creating a new quiz on inventors and their inventions, I decided to look for people according to their countries. I almost always do image searches since doing so does a good job of filtering out pages that merely mention the topic of interest. My first Google search was "american inventors." I expected to see the familiar faces of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, George Westinghouse, Marie Curie, Alexander Graham Bell, George Washington Carver, Edwin Armstrong, Hedy Lamarr, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Goddard, Albert Einstein, the Wright Brothers, Samuel Morse, William Shockley, etc. Those are the names that first come to my mind, and admittedly the list is dominated by White men. Imagine my surprise when the Google search results belied my perception. Take a look (to the left) at the first few pages of results to see what I mean. Note that the search results will change over time, so you probably will not receive the exact same set as shown here.

Next, I moved on to an image search for "canadian inventors." Then, I tried "english inventors" and "french inventors." Next came "german inventors," "chinese inventors," and "mexican inventors." Is it just my imagination, or is there a very obvious difference between the American inventors results and all the other countries' results? Are our history records being changed to fit a preferred political narrative? Is essential, truthful information being denied us? Similar results were had using Bing, Yahoo, and Duck Duck Go search engines. Winston Smith, call your office...
