Why Famous People & Companies in Tech Are Important
Just like taking American or European history in middle school, there are important dates, facts and figures that everyone should know in order to have context around how certain cultures, societies, habits and laws came to be. As society becomes more digitally based, it is important to know about the history of certain devices/software and the people responsible for driving us towards the future.
