We’ve never seen a Tuesday like this before.
The future of space is upon us. Admittedly, I’m not a die-hard sci-fi fan, I have not joined the elite ranks of Star Wars aficionados, and, despite my overall appreciation for all things Elon Musk, my overall interest in inflatable rooms on alternate planets is underwhelming at best.
But, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the importance of the work being executed by a class of genius builders as we enter an era where notable tech companies are adding resources, talent, and brainpower behind futuristic initiatives like driverless cars and intergalactic travel.
If you’re well-versed on this trend (or any others), shoot me an email. Let’s discuss.
