Who Guides


Welcome to Who Guides, a concept we’re very excited to launch and manage.

Who Guides is all about people, special people who invented or designed something, discovered a place or a scientific principle, or were just the first to set a record or do something never before successfully completed. Who Guides is about heroes, great men and women, and even ordinary people who stepped forward and made a difference.

Was America really discovered by Christopher Columbus or did the Romans and Vikings beat him to it? Did the Wright Brothers really fly an airplane first, how many people claim to have flown before them? Why is Steve Wozniak famous, and how does he feel about being famous? How did Britney Spears get a her first big break, was she really a child prodigy, can we learn anything from her story?

History isn’t just about kings and emperors, tho some us believe Elvis really was the king of rock ‘n roll.
