All the best, robot!
One hundred years ago, Karel Čapek published his drama, R.U.R. This major work is famous not only for the message imparted in it by the brilliant Čapek, but also because it was the first time the word robot was ever used.

Once there was a Moravian Manchester
Once upon a time, north of Vienna, there was a city called Brno. With its face smeared with ashes, it was always looking up to the older, more successful metropolis in the South. Toward the end of the 18th century, however, this Cinderella’s lucky stars began to shine. No, there was no fairy with a magic wand, turning pumpkins into carriages and mice into horses – all it took was an entrepreneur doing business in the textile industry. Disappointed? Don’t be! There’ll be the dress, and even several of them! And they lived happily ever after? Well, this fairy tale is only beginning!
