Points, per syllabus: 1 Due date: Friday, December 3

Let’s look at some ads from the historical era of computing.

Go to: and enter at least 50 items. This should be pretty fast.

Note that:

  1. You must identify yourself by clicking the person icon in the upper left corner.
  2. You may not be able to answer all the questions perfectly. That’s OK.
  3. Clicking through pages with no ads counts for 1.
  4. Interestingness means that there’s something neat about the ad: something worth discussing. Most of these will not be super-interesting.
  5. If you want to make up a response paper, you can ask some questions in the discussion forums online.

There’s no submission necessary aside from being signed in while you describe the items.
