First, firster, firstest

Mark Madsen (Third Nature)
Keynote
Location: Sutton Parlors

History seems irrelevant in the software world, particular when dealing with lots of
information. It isn’t. Information explosions are not new. They’ve happened repeatedly
throughout human history. A little looking will turn up prior incarnations of information
management patterns and concepts that can be repurposed using today’s technologies.

The first person to conceive of something is usually not the first. They’re the first to re-conceive at a point where the current technology caught up to someone else’s idea.
We’re at a point today where many old ideas are being reinvented. Come hear why
looking to the past beyond your core field of interest is worthwhile.
