How Does Technology Reach Escape Velocity
Now on demand I am talking to Alfred Poor, Editor and Publisher of Health Tech Insider (@AlfredPoor) and a long-standing member of the technology community dating back to the early and exciting days of the first personal computers when he worked as a reporter at PC Magazine.
Listen in to hear about his front-row seat to this revolution and hear about the days of Comdex and PC Expo which “were not that big of a show”. These early experiences have shaped razor sharp insights into what creates success in innovation.
