Interesting clip from the 70’s.

One of my ex students from a couple of years ago posted this on Facebook this morning. An interesting snippet, don’t you think?

One more day of work, then we have two weeks of holidays! I’ll be gardening like mad… and doing demos. Anything to avoid the housework!

    Fascinating – I love the black and white and the hairstyles. I find it interesting that the positive aspect he comes up with is one that hasn’t really been realised much. Instead of freeing people to live where they like etc I sometimes think the constant communication has had the reverse effect chaining them to the office even when they are geographically removed from it.

    I agree with Liz that the freeing aspect hasn’t happened, but I think that’s more to do with our attitudes and the way we as a society thinks about things. The presenter indicated that his son may be more able to cope with the new technologies, but I think it will take more than one generation to change such thinking.

    I love the works of Mr. Clarke. He wrote some brilliant sci-fi.

    this is one prediction from that era that did come true. except for, as Liz pointed out, that freeing up of our time.

Don't be shy... say something!
