Random Thoughts on Technology

The Network is the Computer – John Gage 1984

It’s remarkable (to me anyways) how slow companies have been to adopt “technology”. I see the same story in virtually every industry.

The reality is that “technology” has become the core of their business for one simple reason – The first interaction between any consumer and any brand almost always begins with a search on Google.
