This post by NoiseProfessor in the DS106 feed reminded me of how I used one of the old instructional videos and chopped it up to advertise for a summer class years ago.
I used to show it to students. I still don’t know why there are pioneers at the end.
The trick is if you watch the whole thing it’s pretty good information. It still holds up pretty well. So my challenge/idea for ds106 – take a prelinger archive video, an old one, and chop it up. Pick to either reinforce the old 1950′s era message because it still holds up, or choose to beat it up, but use the video itself to either justify or condemn itself.
And if anyone can figure out how to drop 3 little MST3K folk in the bottom right corner, enlighten us…:-).
