Spring 2005 is here and the AD 508 Seminar Series is well under way!

This semester Franz Fischnaller will be leading the class into discussions about ten technologies that have dramatically changed the American lifestyle. Paul Boutin believes that from all the new technologies that have appeared in the past half century, ten high-tech breakthroughs have stood the test of time because of their revolutionizing effect on the way of American life. These ten are:

  • Digital Media
  • Electronic Funds Transfer
  • Genetic Engineering
  • Mobile Phones
  • Nuclear Power
  • Organ Transplants
  • Personal Computers
  • Robots and Artificial Intelligence
  • Space Flights
  • The Internet

Students participating in the AD 508 Seminar will be presenting on one of these topics each week.

By the end of the semester, the participants of the AD 508 Seminar will benefit from discussions on these topics and also others that include electronic media, visualization, and artistic concepts.
