A Crystal Ball For Retail IT

Jim Roddy

By Jim Roddy

One of my favorite books on my office bookshelf is the yearbookstyle "50th Anniversary History of the ICRDA," a recap of the organization that combined with the SDA to form the RSPA. This book's photos, all of them black and white, include lots of great faces plus plenty of technology. The hairstyles and tie widths have changed (thank goodness), but the technology has experienced a more dramatic shift.
