MN.20.11.1997. When Comdex was riding high

I often feel that many exhibitions in 2014 will go the way of Comdex. Many people don't even remember the name. They were a whole series of computer exhibitions in the US which suddenly collapsed into a black hole.

Those were the days when phones were phones and the only way to make a video on it was to fiddle around with Powerpoint and fake it. Far more impressed with events like Techcrunch Disrupt these days.

MN.03.11.1983 Invasion of Grenada

Very early edition of Media Network when Dennis Powell reported on monitoring the US invasion of Grenada in November 1983. We did everything on very ropey old phone lines which must have sounded horrendeous on shortwave. But we got the news out.
