Fellow Historia Backers (and even non-Historia Backers),

My girlfriend and I came across a series of DVDs...the contents of which date back nearly 40 years. If you have a chance, and as evidenced by becoming a Backer of Historia you appreciate the historical trek over time, I highly recommend a BBC series entitles, Connections with James Burke.

The DVD cover has the following 'grabber' for its audience: "As the Sherlock Holmes of science, Burke tracks through 12,000 years of history for the clues that lead us to eight great life-changing inventions..." Sound familiar?!?

Cheers,
Joe

Oh, thanks Joe. I absolutely loved that show, but could never remember the host or show's name. Thank you!

A short piece of wisdom from James in 1979.

Don't worry, his weird prediction about an electronic world'll never happen.

Yeah, yet another digital utopia that could only describe a single projection of possible outcomes. As we know it by now, electronic world became as complex, intricate and turbulent as its real world counterpart it attempts to present. Why, because between digital utopia and reality, human nature happened.
