50 Years of Video Calling

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 - 10:15am

The School of Design's Molly Wright Steenson will be part of a panel celebrating 50 Years of Video Calling. 

From the event link:

To celebrate the 50th anniversary — June 30, 2020 — current Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto and Alcoa Chairman Michael G. Morris will video chat, as their predecessors did a half century ago. We hope that you will join our livestream (10:15am ET) to reflect on this seminal event, which heralded a future of ubiquitous video calling and telecommuting that is mainstream today. Following the call, a panel of scholars from Carnegie Mellon University will host a live Q&A, discussing the history and legacy of the Picturephone's launch.
