Sometimes it’s hard to stop and remember where technology was 20 years ago. These days it feels like innovation is happening at such a rapid rate it can be hard to keep track of where we’ve been.

We reflect on a few things worth bringing along for the ride this year, Sean points out a few interesting possibilities waiting for us this next 12 months, and we both officially retire from our dreams of becoming e-Sports stars (although we retain the right to break out our Fortnite dance moves at any time).
