Anachronistic Ads - Twitter

I was talking about anachronisms in an issue of the RACS e-newsletter awhile back. That discussion was on the virtues that physical media will always hold over downloading/streaming, and how new things aren't necessarily always better (just different), so I wanted to post a really cool series of ads I book-marked awhile back that feature modern social media applications in a vintage 60's retro-tech propaganda style. I'm going to post 1 a week for 4 weeks.

I think these illustrations help put some of these 'ubiquitous' tech tools into perspective, and reminds us that they will all - one day very soon - become anachronisms themselves...
