Andrew knows his stuff ...
... Andrew is sharp, connected and someone that you need to add to your list of virtual advisers. There are lots of people out there "spouting off" and then there are those "in the know;" Andrew fits into the second batch. He's well connected and well spoken - looking forward to new episodes!
Always one step ahead
This series is classic Andrew Weinreich. For those that haven't heard him speak, he is an excellent orator who can create a clear and compelling argument for just about anything. Andrew is one of those people that see the future and one of the very few that know how to capitalize it.
I highly recommend listening to this series as you will become both enlightened about, and excited to take on the future.
Andrew's material is insightful, knowledgeable and understandable even to barely tech-literates like me. Always interesting, sometimes useful, occasionally brilliant.
