The Strange Tale of the Norden Bombsight
From TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, watch "Master storyteller Malcolm Gladwell tell the tale of the Norden bombsight, a groundbreaking piece of World War II technology with a deeply unexpected result."
Periodically, a new and unusual source of information about technology and its history will be offered. It is hoped that these examples will stimulate thinking about sources of information and approaches to studying and teaching the history of technology itself. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please email the SHOT secretary.
