    “Where’s my SST?!” 

    SST, standing for SuperSonic Transport, seen during the 1960’s as the next logical step for civilian avian transportation. The most well-known prototype of which was the Concorde.

    Another Version of “Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” 

    The whole presentation is astounding…and edifying.

      Disney’s presentation about the Pavilion (after the song) is pretty amazing…

      It’s pretty clear that the presentation is intended not for the public, but for GE executives. That thought certainly changes the tenor of Disney’s remark about the song being “written especially for you,”. Watching this, gives me an icky kind of feeling that I get when I hear super-capitalist business people talk about ideas, or discuss their ventures in terms of the public good. I can’t shake the sense that the ideas themselves don’t actually matter, except in relation to their potential for profit. That’s when I get the creeps.

      My editorial twopence.
