The web is a time machine.

It allows you to go back through the years and dig up old articles that talk about some of the same problems we’re talking/blogging about today.

Re-reading these articles gives us a chance to take a self-test to see how we did.

Did we solve any of these problems?  Did our ideas work?  Are we still faced with the same problems? Are they worse?

Here are a couple of classic articles from more than 10 years ago:

Marketing Broadway as a Cool Spot – April 14, 1996 (right before the opening of Rent)

Big Bucks on Broadway Marketing Survey Shows Audiences Older & Richer – March 7th, 1997

Broadway Mounts A Brand-New Production – June 29, 1995
