Nostaligic about the Future

Predictions often seem funny. Why did we think X would happen, when Y was so obvious? Or was it? When we look back, it seems like we can trace a path from earlier innovations (Intel 8008 processor) to later ones (Linux on commodity Intel chips). But when we look forward, there are endless possibilities. If we want our preferred technologies to win out, we need to learn from the past. I’ll look at some turning points in technology and open source, to see how we got here from there.
