Information Theory part 7: Morse Code

Follows the development of needle telegraphs in Europe which eventually lead to Morse code & key lever designs. During this period there was a focus on increasing the signal rate in order to send more letters per minute. This video focuses on details related to line coding strategies and how time/tempo played a role in information transmission. (1820-1900)
