Sometimes the internet reminds you why you love it. Ashley Blewer has put together an absolutely fantastic “Halt and Catch Fire syllabus”. She describes it like this:
“The intent is for this website to be used by self-forming small groups that want to create a ‘watching club’ (like a book club) and discuss aspects of technology history that are featured in this series.”
The syllabus starts off strong, with one of my favorite OG reads — Ursula Franklin’s Real World of Technology lectures—and continues to pick up steam from there. I was already itching to rewatch Halt and Catch Fire, and this just gave me the kick in the pants I needed to do it. Anyone want to join my watching club?
