History that pervades for decades

 Really interesting article in the WSJ today

I love the idea of "forgotten knowledge' eg an entire industry does something in a certain way or format.....and no one knows the history of why or that they stand on the shoulders of giants.

 I just ordered Kai-Fu Lee’s book off Amazon - https://amzn.to/2YgryYl
