The History of Digital Signage

Every story has a backstory that started with a spark or an idea. Better known as history, these stories spur us to go beyond our humble beginnings and into a place where we create more history. The more history we create, the more stories we have to tell. Digital signage has such a story. One probably wouldn’t think there’s much to it, but there is. It’s a good one, too. I'd better start by saying the origin and history varies depending on what your definition of signage is. For this post, I'm going to start at the beginning of communication on signage, not "digital signage." So, no nitpicking over definitions.
