The Lighthouse Stevensons

I am reading a book about the building of the Scottish lighthouses in the 1800s.  I came across an interesting section where it talked about how the early pioneers’ success allowed the next generation to flourish.  The next generation’s engineers were not just aware of each other’s existence but drew on each other’s expetise.  Networks were established, correspondence exchanged….  They were able to draw on each other’s  knowledge to produce solutions to many of the most pressing technological problems.  

In terms of networks and learning I thought it captured what this is all about for me.
