This is a list of notable and highly distinguished innovators and inventors whose innovations have made significant contributions to the advancements in today's modern world. As Ayn Rand said very succinctly "I am an innovator. This is a term of distinction, a term of honor, rather than something to hide or apologize for. Anyone who has new or valuable ideas to offer stands outside the intellectual status quo. But the status quo is not a stream, let alone a 'mainstream'. It is a stagnant swamp. It is the innovators who carry mankind forward."
