Sometimes inventors are really just innovators.


Take Thomas Newcomen, for instance, or Johannes Gutenberg.  Newcomen is often credited with inventing the steam engine, and, surely, his contributions to its practical operation are significant, but he essentially built upon the work with steam of Thomas Savery and Denis Papin.  Gutenberg is often credited with inventing the printing press, but he merely combined a number of existing medieval products and technological processes into a functional system.  We would venture to suppose that most inventions could be more accurately described as innovations.

The strong confluence between invention and innovation may be why two large pavilions at Epcot in Walt Disney World are called Innoventions; there is Innoventions East and Innoventions West.  If you visit there, then beside Innoventions West you will find at the posted coordinates a circle with plaques set in the ground commemorating many important innoventions of the past.

And between Thomas Newcomen and Johannes Gutenberg you will find one of the most important innoventions of all time.  To record your find of this innovention, enter the password, which is the date of the innovention, exactly as it appears on the plaque.

I can't believe I almost forgot about OCUS caches during my family vacation to Disney! Had it not been for a friend reminding me, I would have just mindlessly Munzees my way through all the parks!

This one "real" cache was better than the 100s of Munzees I capped. This was a family effort! My oldest daughter found one invention , my wife the other, and my youngest made the password "find"!

Thanks for the cache!

I had my eye on this and finally was able to get here to find it.  Went just after finishing the Spaceship earth ride. Thanks for the tourist firendly virtual.

Escaped after our company conference recognition event to find this cache by torchlight. This is much more difficult than by daylight I am sure! It struggled to find the earlier inventor mostly because he lived earlier than I thought but once found the CC was easily found and I agree that it was a pretty important one! 

I was hoping to find some of the TerraCaches whilst here but all nearby were too involved to attempt at night so an especially big thanks for making this one quite straightforward and my first US OpenCache.

Congratulations to Rayman for being the First-To-Find this cache!  We're glad to know that you found it to be a bit of a challenge.

Well you beat me to logging the Downtown Disney virt by only a couple days. But since you created this very nice new one, I'll gladly take the FTF here instead. I actually looked for this one on Friday I think, but Epcot was packed and I had a hard time finding one of the names. Plus I'm sure I looked rather silly walking around in circles to the folks sitting on the bench nearby.

Came back on Sunday to try again and had much better luck. I've walked over this thing many many times but never really stopped to look at everything on it. At one point, I had thought it was the geographical center of all of WDW, but I cannot confirm if that ever was the case. At any rate, thanks for creating a new OCUS virt. Once I get back home, I will do the same and create one of my own, perhaps two.
