What were the 10 greatest innovations ever

Braden Kelley, who shared this image, gave his ideas on the top 10 innovations of all time. I suppose I should leave out the use of tools and the management of fire as innovations that may have predated Homo sapiens. So lets see what I come up with:

  1. Agriculture / domestication of food plants
  2. Domestication of animals
  3. Clothing and shoes
  4. Buildings
  5. Pottery and glass
  6. Metal tools
  7. Markets
  8. Government
  9. Boats
  10. Money
