�Auf die Kunst des Guttenberg trinkt heut noch jeder gern,
einen guten Stoff gew�rzet mit Hopf und Gerstenkern.�

(Everyone still likes to drink to the art of Gutenberg,
with the good stuff seasoned with hops and barley.)

Johannes Gutenberg (or Guttenberg, c. 1398-1468), introduced movable type printing and other innovations that allowed for mass production of printed texts in Renaissance Europe. The resultant �printing revolution� produced an era of relatively unrestricted information flow, undermining the education monopoly then enjoyed by the political and religious elite, and ultimately resulting in major societal restructuring.
