40 Years Ago Today
Most young whippersnappers in the ‘new media’ business don’t even know what Apollo was and were not alive on this historic day in 1969. I remember my parents taking us to the neighbor’s house because they had a larger TV so we could watch the moon landing. It was the space program that fueled my interest in math and science. As a kid, I had this dream of working in the space program, so what the heck am I doing writing Flash applications? Oh yeah, it’s that whole paying the bills thing 🙂
At least the young whippersnappers have done a phenominal job of reliving the excitement of the times online with great sites like http://www.wechoosethemoon.org/ . I can only hope that the spirit of adventure, innovation, and exploration continues and I get to see a Mars landing in my lifetime.
