Tamim Ansary’s email
Go to the page below and read. Keep in mind this email was originally sent two days after September 11, 2001.
Consider the following questions:
- What if Mr. Ansary had wanted to express these ideas in the days before computer communication?
- If people passed along Mr. Ansary’s email today would it be considered spam?
- The “Zapruder Film” is footage of President Kennedy’s assassination taken with a businessman’s 16-mm home movie camera. Why is this film considered such an important historical document? (it’s in the Smithsonian collection)
