The Importance Contigency…and My History of Technology Geek Moment
Not going to lie, I entirely forgot about posting after I read. So, my bad on the lateness. That said… I really, REALLY, liked the article “Investigation the History in Prehistories.” I particularly attached to the discussion of contingency in Continue reading →

Droppin’ Some Knowledge on Knowledge. Ohhhh Snap!
