What the Future Looked Like 60 Years Ago

I just got a chance to view this video entitled The Challenge of Change about the future of communications and computing as it appeared to the Bell System in 1961.  I think the take away for me is that we go much faster in developing technology as a result of breaking up the system and letting new companies come in with new technology and products.  I am not sure Bell Labs would ever have got us there.

Thanks to Lauren Weinstein and Dave Farber’s IP list.
