Let’s take a step back in time. It is the early 1990s and days before trial. We are rushing our documents and custom graphics to the reprographics shop to be blown up on foam boards. Some lawyers on our team are finalizing their slide show—an actual slide show, made up of 35 mm slides to be displayed in a carousel wheel and projector. (It would be a year or two before adventurous attorneys would start discovering PowerPoint, released by Microsoft in 1990.) If only we had more money, we could afford an ELMO, the latest, cutting-edge video overhead projector. As it is, we’re lucky to have a VCR.
