Episode 48: Study the Past

A.I. this. Blockchain that. The latest in the tech wars. You'd think we're living in the future. In some ways we are, but our route here is an interesting and essential one to understand. Rooted in so much of what we need to address today – in marketing, business, and technology – is where we came from.

You've often heard the saying "those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it." It's not quite as bleak as that. But if you stop to observe, history has lessons that can actually provide a roadmap for us as we forge through the wilderness of the future.

In this episode, I'll take you to the steps of the National Archives in Washington, DC for a history lesson and a preview of things to come.
