Update: Crack correspondent down has contributed this excellent companion chart to the original blog post.
Let’s give it up for Alicia Parlapiano.
The Washington Post graphic artist has put together a fantastic newspaper (and Web) feature in today’s paper.
Her chart, accompanying a round-up of the Consumer Electronics Show, plots the rise and fall of various technologies, from black-and-white TVs to smartphones, while also denoting the price of these products. There is TONS of information buried in this pictorial — like 10 million people still buy radios each year — and subsequently, we should toast to yes, big media, and their ability to pay talented artists.
