    Sarah McMillian - Preserving and Mondernizing Historical Buildings with Connected Technology [Replay]

    Sarah McMillian, of Temboo, believes historical buildings hold vast amounts of valuable cultural currency. They tell a story not only of the people that built the building but also of the community in which they lived and what they valued. And so preserving historical buildings, in her view, is valuable to our culture and our community. However, connecting these buildings and creating interoperability is challenging, but Temboo has a solution.

    Who's The Next Blockbuster?

    Who's The Next Blockbuster?

    We like to end each episode with the "Lightning Round", a series of questions meant to elicit answers off the top of the guests head. In this episode, various guests from the past two years talk about the industries, businesses, and companies they believe are at risk of obsolescence, or at the very least, massive disruption in the next 10 years. In other words, "Who is the next Blockbuster?"

I had the honor of being a guest on this show and Blake has a knack for sparking really good conversation about the future of life on planet earth. I think it's a must listen for any technologist, entrepreneur, of futurist. Great stuff. Keep up the great work!

Thanks, Dan!

Daniel Herscovici does a great job explaining how incremential changes have compounded to create these incredibly innovative, but seemingly simple, home tech. He uses real life example so listeners can see how these small changes make a big difference, most notably creating piece of mind.

I guess my only question is that if these things were to grow into everything that we do... what if they disappeared all at once? Would society be in a state of complete anxiety because knowing everything is not an option? Does this make us less stable and more dependent? not sure if this would happen, just food for thought :)
