The Future isn't what it Used to be


This weekend I was watching a bunch of videos on line of those old film reels form the 40;s-60's about how awsome the future was supposed to be. It all started with this video on the Seattle Worlds Fair, which was essentially an advert for bell. Most of those were adverts, of course (car of the future, kitchen on the future, etc) trumpeting the march of post war consumerism. But still, I kind of admire the optimism and excitement about the future "Check it out it's going to be shiney and awesome!"  After watching a handful of these I can't help but feel like I'm living in a dystopian future to those people.
