Farewell Analog Television: Flipping the Switch


My fellow blogger, Scottoway took a moment to eulogize the passing of analog television when it happened earlier this month.

I just happened to come across a pretty neat video via snapstream blogs and that fine stand-up character Mike at 1000 monkeys that tells the story in a more direct way.

Here, the author recorded the transitions on several channels, and put them together in this montage. It’s pretty neat (in my opinion) to actually watch them flipping the switches.

    Whoa I thought I stumbled upon the Scottosphere.
