Walter Cronkite Tours the Home of the 21st century

 As you may have figured out I'm a massive fan of anything retro futuristic. I love how everyone thought the future would look back in the mid 20th century. So very hopeful, stylized and clean. No wet, grungy apocalyptic society in sight. The Paleofuture blog over at Smithsonian.com just ran a drool inducing article. It's about an episode of Walter Cronkite’s half-hour CBS documentary program “The 21st Century.” In this particular episode he visits the home of the 21st century. In the year 2001 to be exact. If you want to see what 1967 thought 2001 would look like hit the link and check it out.
