“WAS IT ON IN THE ’90s?” we will bellow. “NO! BACK TO THE SILICON MINES!”
(My vision of the development process in the future is, I confess, somewhat muddled.)
No, I’m sorry, I love “Reading Rainbow,” the Peabody Award-winning show to encourage literacy in kids that ran from 1983 to 1999 with host LeVar Burton, as much as the next child of that era. Which is, I think, what the crowdfunding project to revive “Reading Rainbow” for this generation of Internet Kids is banking on. It’s already raised more than $600,000 of its $1 million goal. It aims to bring Reading Rainbow into the classroom and onto the Internet, for free.
But hey, I’m on board. Let’s get “Wishbone” back, as long as we’re at it!
