A Blast from the Past

When I saw William Shatner in this little nugget from the archives of the AT&T Tech Channel, posted by Engadget, my first thought was "wow look how far we've come."

Then, a stray synapse fired, and I had a flashback to my high school days: a Navy recruiter, in a bid to convince me and my buddies that he was offering not just a job but an adventure, showed us a video of good ol' Cap'n Kirk presenting the advanced technology of our submarine fleet. I'm still trying to find that one on YouTube!

The AT&T/Bell Labs video discussing the implications of the microprocessor runs about 14 minutes. A subtle PR video in 1976 (slightly revised in 1980), it's entertaining today but has a certain educational value, as well. ~ Davis

Editor’s note 10.3.2014: since the original post in March 2011, some of the above links no longer work, but the AT&T Tech Channel is also on YouTube. Gotta love those sound effects!

Happy Birthday to the United States Air Force!

As Delawareans, we are proud of our state’s long-running history with Dover AFB, home of the 436th Airlift Wing. In 1947, President Truman signed the National Security Act which established the Department of Defense, and along with it, the creation of the US Air Force as an independent service. The official birthday of the US Air Force is 18 September 1947. Happy Birthday to the USAF!

Check out this awesome recruiting video, featuring USAF’s Max Impact!
