X-mas 1983

I was 13 years old when this episode of The Computer Chronicles aired. This means I was logging onto BBS’s and CompuServe with my TRS-80 Color Computer. $9.99 of a floppy disk with a low res christmas card on it!

“The Computer Chronicles was an American television series, broadcast during 1981-2002 on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) public television, which documented the rise of the personal computer from its infancy to the immense market at the turn of the 21st century.” – wikipedia.org

    I had to listen to the beginning more than once just to make sure its the floppy hes praising as “the high-tec christmas present”.
    How ridiculous those toys were although the bears voice had something interesting.
    Alot has changed for sure and I’m glad about that.I love the way technology evolves constantly and how everything and everyone can connect to whatever.
