Weekly Giveaway -This’ll keep you busy for awhile : The Complete National Geographic

National Geographic- a classic brand that connotes high quality photography and insightful writing.
For over 120 years, this society and magazine have represented the pinnacle in any photojournalists or documentarians career. Translating cultures, nature, and viewpoints in a palatable, yet scholarly manner, this periodical is a gateway to the world for many.
Years ago, I found a complete set of mags and jumped on the collection.
A bookcase was dedicated to holding the yellow spined issues.
In the 90′s a new digital version was available, and that allowed me to donate the hard copies and use the cd-roms in an easier searchable format.
It keeps getting better.

This new iteration, Complete National Geographic
includes every printed page–every article, photograph, advertisement–from 1888 through 2008
* Browse special “readlists” from National Geographic stars or personalize your archive by creating and saving your own lists of favorite articles
* Test your knowledge of subjects with a trivia game and reference hundreds of the magazine’s classic maps
* Geobrowse helps you easily find articles, photographs, and maps about the location you choose
* Includes bonus DVD with videos documenting the history of the National Geographic Society and National Geographic magazine

The interface is a bit iTunes-flow like:

Or pick a location you want some info on (we love this part especially)

Sure there are a couple missed elements and readers have pointed them out, although updates are available.
There is a new version just released, but this one should be all that you need. For now.
I just picked it up and have been spending late nights checking it out.

There is one of these to give this week and as long as you are subscribed for the free Newsletter, read that Newsletter, answer the question correctly, and send it back to us in a reply email, you’ll be entered in the randomized giveaway.
One of my favorite things to do is check through the ads through the years. For me, that is a true reflection of the culture.
