It seems improbable and would not have been even known to me had not my New Zealand colleague Stephen Harlow pinged me in Mastodon about seeing a live concert from The Buggles where he spotted a familiar image in the stage backdrop

Screenshot from the YouTube video, unfortunately it has been deleted! But you may find more on YouTube before they too get zappes.

That image on screen is in fact one I had created myself for a presentation in 2013 about DS106 well as much as creation is finding an image of an old TV and superimposing a logo….

But I cannot isolate the exact source of the base retro TV that I pretty much slapped on a DS106 logo, beyond it’s metadata indicating it came from a Blogger site (the image is still there).

I am not sure how the stage designer for the Buggles chose my tv image over many of the other copies out there, but all in all, pretty amazing.

Full details on da blog! And this is the only bit of proof since the video has been deleted. I can see a handful of other videos, but who knows when they will be deleted or removed.
