    It's called "progression". Fire was the greatest invention of its time. So was the wheel. And let's not forget "the greatest thing since sliced bread".

    Perhaps in a couple of hundred years, someone will come back to this time period, answer this question and award himself "best answer".

    Rather depend which era you are talking about. Much of the digital age has its origin in the Second World War when resources were poured into various technologies that otherwise might not have happened.

    Since you're not being specific my answer will generalize. One discovery leads to the next.
