The CDs in the new New Yorker cartoon book are about as searchable as anything in Adobe Acrobat is. I thought I would spend some time in my birth year. I am not even out of January, 1966, and I want to start a list of surprising things that come up:

  • a computer-systems analyist
  • Bill Moyers
  • vidoe-tape replay

Some cartoons emphasize the gulf between then and now:

  • the couple trying to get the color on their TV adjusted so both Huntley and Brinkley look right
  • the future people living on the moon [sure, we have cell phones, but where are our jet packs and moon colonies??]
