Emerging and Historical Perspectives

It comes to mind that this blog is about emerging technologies.  Yet I often go back to my own and related enterprise experience and history.  Examples, like AI, where the technology often failed at first,  in expert systems, but is either emerging again in the same or another form.  Delivering just-in-time information in visual form is another topic that has come up often recently.   It just did not have the technology ready when we did it first, in the late 80s, but now we have smart phones and pads and ubiquitous mobile connections, the horsepower to make it work, and it is thriving.  History sets a useful perspective.
