What do I know about the historical period and the digital concept assigned to me? Surprisingly little, but I am excited to learn more about the 16th century and how it was affected by openness. I know that there were many great artists to come out of this time as well as thinkers like Galileo and Copernicus who changed the way we thought about the heavens. The Church was under attack by Martin Luther and Bibles were begining to spread as the press was invented in the 15th century. It was a time of forward thinking and change, much like now.
