Bell's first telephone patent, in 1876, had modestly announced an "Improvement in Telegraphy," a mere modification of the older technology, but the technical description it contained pointed to a fundamental innovation in its method of transmission: "My present invention consists in the employment of a vibratory or undulatory current of electricity in contradistinction to a merely intermittent or pulsatory current...." (14) We would now characterize this, of course, as the difference between "analog" and "digital," rather than "undulatory" and "intermittent"; but though the terms were unknown in this sense, the processes involved were not.
