Since you make this personal:

1) talk to other people
2) look for better venues
3) write your own history, put it out there, make that important

This works for me, so since Christian made this a personal consideration 
I've provided mine.

About "historians". To paraphrase Andy Warhol, "in the future everyone 
will be an historian for 15 minutes". Like I was here, today, maybe?
