It's a neat set of archived articles. But I don't quite see how 1893-1992 = 138 years.

I think zarq is going for some kind of all time metafilter poster award. Keep up the good work, sir.

It's so funny that they thought we'd only get air cars by the year 2000. I remember being taken for my first ride in one back in 1982.

Keep up the good work, sir.

Thanks. :)

I must find the free time to read the rest of those magazines online. The ads alone look fascinating.

It was at the 1982 Worlds Fair that I saw fiber optics, lasers and touch screen computers for the first time. It was one of the most attended worlds fairs ever.
