No blood in ants -- the video edition!

Amazing video of newspapers over computer circa 1981

No blood in ants -- the video edition!


Wow -- huge h/t to Romenesko for posting this amazing "Tomorrowland" genre of newspapers on your computer, circa 1981 (the year I entered newspapering full-time).

Still trying to figure out the best part -- the rotary dial phone, the editor who concedes "we don't really expect to make any money" from news on a home computer...or the anchorwoman's hair-do!
