That'll be 1969, not 1996 - I'm pretty sure no member of the Armstrong family was on the Moon in 1996.

That was the date of the interview with his widow and her quote, not the date of the moonwalk. (Although I could see how you read it as if I'd inverted the numbers in 1969).
I edited the trivia entry to clarify that it was the date of the interview.

Interesting. However, the question was misleading. He thought poorly of the content his invention distributed. Not the same thing as thinking poorly of the invention itself. Oh well, I'll have to work to get my % back up to 50% (without cheating).

Farnsworth is generally considered to have assembled the world's first working television system, incorporating electronic scanning of both the pickup and display devices, which he demonstrated in 1927. However, lilmoeth is quite right; John Logie Baird first demonstrated the transmission of moving images a full two years earlier, in 1925, and is the undisputed inventor of the medium.
