The "Evolution of Technology" series looks at travel, now and then.

In fact, my very first published writing was about the sad direction that television movies took during a low period in the form when every sensationalized true-crime murder story was glorified into a TV movie. It was called Murders of the Week and I like to believe its words helped usher out that shameful period in an otherwise pretty noble and enriching entertainment form. - http://www.brucesallan.com/2012/12/01/evolution-technology-television-movie-aka-moviesoftheweek/

We went on photographic expeditions. Being relatively nerdy guys, we even convinced one of the “hot” and “cool” girls at school to pose in a bathing suit for us, on the top of a building. We also took photographs of each other skiing and some great ones on our river-rafting trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. - http://www.brucesallan.com/2012/09/01/evolution-technology-film-photography-darkrooms/

There’s a famous story – the details of which of course I don’t remember – of how the Jewish comedian Jackie Mason somehow got on the wrong side of Ed Sullivan and was banned from his show.

Somehow or other, I was front and center in the shot (and it wasn’t even my car!). - http://www.brucesallan.com/2012/09/01/evolution-technology-film-photography-darkrooms/

My cousin Sandy, to this day, still speaks very slowly whenever he leaves a voice message on my cell-phone. It reminds me of the that great scene in “Singin’ In the Rain” when talkies are first introduced at the studio exec’s house and a funny-looking “professor” explains how they work. - http://www.brucesallan.com/2012/09/21/evolution-technology-answering-machine/
