internet

This is a remarkable video from a 1993 newscast. It's hard to really get a feel for how dramatically the world has changed in the last 14 years. This helps put it in perspective.

I told a group of young new employees today that I did not have an e-mail account while in college. They were SHOCKED.

It wouldn't be until about ten years later that President George W. Bush would rename this phenomenon as "The Internets."

Oh my god. This is Peter Mansbridge from Canadian Broadcasting Corp. He had hair! (he is obviously bald now)

Thanks for posting his.

Ah, I recall the days of the black screen. Internet? I thought that was an invention for scientists and academicians. Now I cannot live without my little world wide community of friends.

I realize how far techonology's evolved whenever I drive downtown and try to imagine a city without cell phones. That was reality less than 20 years ago.

Remember Richard Gere's clumsy "mobile" phone in "Pretty Woman" and how awesome that was?

"...in this world there's a table with a big sign on it saying 'football' and there's about 150 or a thousand jocks from around the world who wanna talk about football..."

Fourteen years later, there're still about a thousand jocks, or more, sitting around the internet table talking about physical pursuits - but the discussion has a decidely different twist.
