The Black Box

"...But most people don't think about where these objects came from, about the lives our possessions lived before we bought them. Almost everything we own spends weeks or even months on factory floors, in warehouses and storage rooms, on trucks and in shipping containers.

The Black Box is a slide lecture exploring, among other topics, more than a century of the history of online shopping. 100 slides, approximately one hour.
