Austin Past and Present: An Interactive Digital History
Created and Produced by Karen Kocher.
Published by Waterloo Press. Austin Past and Present is the first interactive digital history of Austin, telling the story of the community through a multimedia production. Rich with archival photos,film and audio recordings from the Austin History Center and other local collections, Austin Past and Present features well over 300 segments, including eight Time Tour videos chronicling all eras of Austin’s history, 100 photo and text slide shows, and 160 photo and text biographies. All of these stories are accessible on most computers through a user-friendly interface, and the Time Tours can also be viewed on standard DVD players. Users can navigate through the story of Austin by time, or by place, or both. Beginning with the geologic formation of the area, Austin Past and Present offers rare footage and images of significant events throughout the city’s history – including the construction of the 360 Bridge and the very first Capitol Building – as well as little-known details about many historic neighborhoods in Austin. Austin Past and Present was created over six years by award-winning filmmaker and producer Karen Kocher with the help of more than 200 Austinites.
