Thanks so much to Stephanie Gabelmann and The Boonton Holmes Library (http://www.boontonholmeslibrary.org) for hosting my presentation “Going Going Gone: What the Next Generation Won’t Remember.”
Synopsis for “Going Going Gone”
Since the year 2000, we’ve gained iPhones, GPSs, Twitter, Facebook and many other services and devices.
However, we’ve also lost some things that we’ve grown up with. In “Going Going Gone” Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta will take a walk down memory lane and talk about products that are either on their way out the door, or absolutely obsolete.
Some may actually surprise you!
Items included are: VHS video tapes, phone booths (and making phone calls in general!), travel agents, bookstores, newspapers and classified ads, wristwatches, maps, dial-up internet, encyclopedias, CDs, landline phones, film cameras, yellow pages and address books, and hand written letters.
Which of these items do you miss?
Christiano-Mistretta will also jolt your memory remembering some cool products of yesteryear such as the typewriter, the record player and Polaroid cameras.
Come share your views in this interactive lecture! Audience participation is greatly encouraged.
This presentation is available to libraries, senior groups, non-profit organizations, Jewish Community Centers, and rotary clubs. Please contact Maryanne for pricing and availability at: firstname.lastname@example.org
