While it might be hard to imagine a modern day Radio Shack fanatic, it’s considerably less difficult to empathize with the person behind “Radio Shack Catalogs (dot com), an archive of catalogs that is trying to collect every single leaflet distributed since 1939. Kirk suggested we take a look, despite the fact that he doesn’t normally “go for fancy Flash interfaces”. I don’t like the Flash interface in the least, but I’m not the one doing all the heavy lifting collecting catalogs!
There are several holes in the collection still, so if you run across any old catalogs hang on to them for the curator. I’m sure he or she would appreciate it. (And if you find other old tech media you think we’d all like, that’s exactly what our Electro Selectro Flickr pool is all about.)
