What is Happening in 1982? “It’s Computers!”


This news piece from 1982 talks about what everyone had on their minds back in 1982. The computer. Primarily they deal with how a group of kids (all boys) is being educated to embrace the future. What I find most interesting about the piece is the choice of music. It starts with this unsettling electronic music and the ends with this golden age Hollywood audio. Great stuff.

    Gee, I’m jealous. I wish I could have music reminiscent of Tron playing in the background every time I picked up an electronic device or played on a computer. It may motivate me to fight for the users a little more often.
