His credits include Pet Shop Boys’ Yes; Goldfrapp’s… View this post

    “Any industry founded on a particular technology faces the danger that a new invention will render it obsolete.” – Tom Standage, “The Victorian Internet” When I came across this quote in Standage’s fascinating book about the history of the telegraph, it struck me with such veracity that I just put the book down and stared at the wall for a few seconds. This is something I’ve occasionally found myself wondering – will the inevitable advance of technology eventually eliminate my… View this post
