Thanks to Jamie Schumacher for passing along the video link:

“Imagine […] turning on your home computer to read the day’s newspaper.”

…and, 28 years later, newspapers are shutting down because they cannot compete with the home computer.

    Oh. My. God. I was living in SF when this was aired! I’m going to show it to my students, thanks!

    Can anybody identify the computers used in the video? They look really classy!

    We’re working on a show for the end of the summer called “Big Funny,” which will be a big newspaper, filled with full-page comic art like they used to appear in the early 1900s. It was intended to be purely a celebration of the American Comic Strip, but it looks like it might wind up being a commemorative collaboration in honor of a dying media as well.
