This classic 16mm Coronet film gives us an updated take on the previous "Flannel Boards" film from 1958 but this time with synthesizers and punch card data entry! Lots of nostalgic peeks at mainframe computers of the early 70's and how to put together your own Scattergram. I transferred this reel with my Eiki Telecine. Enjoy!

    Ah, punch cards. I remember we used those when I was learning to use Fortran programming when studying engineering back in the 70's. I'm feeling really old watching it!

    The intro sounds like a dharma initiative film

    Hi Fran. I'm an artist; painter, mainly. I believe you're an artist too. I enjoy your eclectic presentations, and eccentric lab. I think that it is so comforting to have a relatively small workspace; surrounded by objects, tools, and materials; which just keep those creative gears, well greased and turning. I'm always impressed by anyone who finds their particular little niche; of creative and intellectual immersion. I wish you continued success; you're very interesting.

    Aren't there templates in Word that do this?

    Is outlining for writing even still taught? And I was taught a form of outlining for computer programming where we wrote pseudo-code and drew block diagrams that were required to be turned in as parts of the assignment. And that was in the days of batch processing with punched cards on a mainframe. I learned FORTRAN and IBM Assembler that way.

    I was interested to see programming by jumpers. I still have some vintage IBM jumpers and connection blocks.
