In this episode of Knotty Geeks, we go to a random Starbucks in Burnaby and brave the weather and traffic noise to talk about how we’re basically missing the forest for the trees.
What forest? What trees? We’re basically talking about how society is changing and how technology accelerates this change. From washing machines to quantum mechanics, we cover it all!
