Will This Be The Year That We’re Back in the USA?

With unemployment hitting all time highs in certain parts of the country, logistics costs still high, duties and taxes rising across the globe, disruptions affecting over 4/5ths of extended supply chains, and home-sourcing looking more-and-more attractive for many US-based enterprises, will this be the year that we all start singing Chuck Berry’s Back in the USA?

Happy Birthday, Wikipedia!

For some of us, it’s hard to believe that Wikipedia went online only 10 years ago today in the same month that saw the creation of AOL Time Warner and the launch of iTunes, which put Apple back on the map.

Where would we be without Wikipedia?

Sitting in the library waiting six weeks for an inter-library loan? (Those of us who did graduate degrees more than 10 years ago remember this, and not too fondly might I add!)
