RCR Episode 165: Computers and advertising

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Jack Nutting, and Carrington Vanston

Topic: Computers and advertising

In honor of the Big Sports Game in the US, we attempt to talk about computers and advertisements. What advertisements made an impression on you, caused you to buy something? Were advertisements really mostly aimed at kids? Or were those just the ones we saw because we were kids? How have things changed? Did Carrington appear in a Quark ad campaign?
