No 'Kodak Moment' today

One of the stories I'll be talking about on the Thursday PhilCast is the fall of Kodak, which is filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection today.

It's a pretty amazing fall. Who among us doesn't have pictures stuffed into an album somewhere...pictures we took using film from those iconic yellow boxes...a thing of the past pretty much now.

Soon there will be an entire generation that has no idea what I'm talking about here. Film? What's that?

Part of the story today includes how it all started with what was called the popular Brownie camera.

I actually have an old Brownie camera on display in my home office. There it is sitting atop my old floor-standing radio.

I picked it up at an estate sale last summer just because I thought it was cool-looking and a big part of the history of Kodak.

Funny, when you look at that photo you'll also see an old tape recorder of mine that I kept around. Tape? What's that?
Later.
