We’re done with If Then: How the Simulmatics Corporation Invented the Future by Jill Lepore. Simulmatics has gone to Vietnam, and we’re in the fall part of the rise and fall of Simulmatics.
Here’s some ideas to kick us off:
What did you think about the book?
By the end, it wasn’t exactly clear what Simulmatics was actually offering ARPA for their money. Can you possibly believe that a technology company might oversell their offerings?
What did you make of the Simulmatics corporation’s Vietnam pivot?
How do you assess the character of the people who ran Simulmatics?
We’re going on break over the holidays, and will resume with Some Assembly Required by Neil Shubin in January! Have an excellent holiday.
