All of this is a way of saying that history is a reluctant teacher. It stands there in the corner, knowing the answers to many of your questions, but will only enlighten you if you ask. (Data is another reluctant teacher -- as many of our questions can be answered with data on hand if only we know how to ask, but that's another discussion entirely.)

That said, I am beginning to structure my education thusly:
- Technologies - What technologies must one master?
- Contributors - Who are the organizations and individuals that are contributing to this space?
- Economics - How the industry is shaping up in terms of monetization options, packages, margins, etc.?
- History - What has gone before and what we can learn from it?
