This issue: Bill Gates • Steve Sasson • Autonomous Vehicles • Open State
Why do we at Presans take an interest in people like Bill Gates and Steve Sasson? For the same reason that we have Presans Fellows: though beyond the age of retirement, innovative minds continue to make enormous contributions to our society.
On another note: our blog just had a make-over. But it retains its fundamental inspiration: to explore with our readers the themes of innovation, technology, digital transformation—and their heroes!
Take care,
