A good friend of mine years ago showed me this web site: http://www.rheingold.com/texts/tft/.
I took my lunch hour each day for a week or so and read each “page” on this site. It deals with computer technology history in a way that I had never read before. As I study each new trend in computer and database technology, I still find this site to be very relevant.
So my challenge to you is to read this site, from beginning to end. Tell me what you think, and if it makes an impact on you.
