Hack #3

We were always discussing in lecture that we are “haunted by history.” In our dorm bathroom, our RA left a flyer for a program that she was putting on, called “Let Off Your Steam!” I found this flyer recently, and first, we are haunted because this flyer is very old and long past. Also, I found it interesting that whenever there is a train reference made, people automatically go to this image of it, instead of the new train technology that is relevant today. Steam powered trains were created in the late 17th century, and the only ones that are still in operation today are for more recreational purposes, like in museums. We are “haunted” by past forms of current innovations.
