See new films from the AT&T Archives every Mon, Wed, Fri, at techchannel.att.com The Viewdata Corporation, a company formed by joint arrangement between AT&T and Knight-Ridder, launched the Viewtron system commercially in 1983. Initially, in 1980 and 1981, it had only 200 users, a test market. By 1984? 2700 subscribers. Two and a half years later, the service had expanded to around 15 cities up and down the east coast, and 15000 users. They even had developed software that would allow IBM, Commodore and Apple computer users (who also had modems) to access the system. The Sceptre system that allowed for TV access had the same microprocessor as a contemporaneous personal computer. But it was not enough to keep the business afloat — after expending over 50 million on the system, the grand information networking experiment that was Viewtron ended. Since hindsight is always 20/20, this was no surprise: for example, one year into the project, one of the online shopping sites had only logged a paltry 11 direct orders — significant, when that was one of the main selling points of the Viewtron system (especially according to this video). This film is about Viewdata, and about the particulars of the Viewtron that led the company to believe, or hope, it would be a success.

JH Hull Middle School Builds Two Sustainble Gardens Thanks to Chevrolet, CBS, and EcoMedia’s EcoAd Program Chevrolet’s first EcoAd Project in Los Angeles County Torrance, CA — March 14, 2012 — CBS EcoMedia, Torrance Unified School District, and Chevrolet unveiled today two sustainable gardens at Hull Middle School. Chevrolet’s Western Region purchased EcoAd advertising on local CBS stations, meaning that Chevy’s ads would be tied to tangible improvements in communities to support the environment. Chevrolet’s EcoAd advertising provided funding to support the installation of two sustainable gardens and state-of-the-art irrigation systems in the Hull Middle School courtyards. As an example of responsible landscaping for the students and surrounding community, the gardens will incorporate “zero-runoff” and water efficient irrigation technologies, and will be integrated into the school’s science and nutrition curriculum. This project is part of a complete energy efficient reconstruction of the middle school, which is the district’s first new campus in 40 years. The inclusion of these gardens will create 23040 hours of labor for workers in the local community.
