This is a pretty good list, but the particular phrasings of various equations I don't always agree with - eg for 3 I would use the Fundamental theorem of the (integral and differential) calculus, for 5 I would use Euler's identity, etc.  (also using the field forms of Maxwell's equations but not for gravity?  boo.)
 
17 Equations That Changed the World

This is Ian Stewart's list, from his book by the same name.

What are some other choices?  I would nominate the quadratic equation, A =pi r², and Google page rank.

The boards should just say "track work" or "no track work" : I don't think "good service" ever applies to Cityfail!

If there was a basic income and no minimum wage, would this lead to less or more use of technology?  I guess it depends on what the basic income level is, and thus what real wages settle down as.
 
Author's summary: "because we rely on market wages to allocate purchasing power we have resisted technology-driven reductions in employment, and because we have resisted that decline in work we have trapped ourselves in a world of self-limiting productivity growth." (ht +Ezra Klein)
