Cable Television: A Community Information System At Jonathan (1972)

By E.D. McCormick, President, Community Information Systems, Inc.

At Jonathan, Minnesota today, people are using "Responsor" units as part of a demonstration of what the two-way cable system can offer. This demonstration is made possible through a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to Community Information Systems, Inc. We all know that the general public has little or ho idea of what two-way cable into their homes will really mean. None of us knows the full potential. We do know that by putting the "Responsor" units in the hands of enough people and inviting them to use the units to tell the system what they want, we're going to expand their vision of how cable communications can more fully serve their needs, and, in the process, we in the industry are going to become much wiser as to the wants and needs to be fulfilled.
