Junior High History Fair

This week, I served as a judge at a history fair a local K-12 school (yes, a rare remaining example of K-12 under one roof).  Anyway, I had to smile at the trend of history presentations based on very recent things, like ninendo, Pokemon, and X-box. Who is to say that this history is less important than the standard fare of Henry Ford, Amelia Earnhardt, and Hellen Keller presentations.

I’m pretty sure I’ve never played X-box.  I’m a supernintendo guy. X-box has now been around long enough that we can write histories of it. 20180125_094145Does this make you feel old?
