The way we were
If, like me, you find yourself with a bit of time on your hands, and, like me, you also spend some of that time pondering the erosion of American economic hegemony in the world, you might like to take a bittersweet journey through the outstanding Prelinger Archives, one of my favorite stops on this Interweb thingy. Thrill to swinging futuristic commercials, fascinating history lessons, cutting-edge technological innovation, and hard-hitting exposes of life in other cultures. Enjoy.
