Internet Flashback (again) Circa 1991

I found this video back in 2006 and blogged it when the Web 2.0 stuff was heating up.

I just saw a video that absolutely blew my mind on Throw away your TV Archive. This news clip from 1991 discusses a budding cultural phenomenon called “The Internet.” Sound familiar? This definitely gives you some perspective on not only how far the Internet has come, but on how far we still have to go. I highly recommend taking a couple minutes to watch it. As an interesting aside, the majority of the discussion deals with the unique social experience enabled by the Internet. It is eerie to hear folks from 15 years ago discuss feelings of “democratic connectedness” in a world where Social Networks are all the rage. Check out more comments on Digg. Later fan-boys.

What a trip.

  • nice find… it's actually a pretty prescient clip.

  • Pretty insane, right? It's amazing how the social aspect of the Internet was in mind even then.

    Its a hilarious vid. The politeness of the early days has unfortunately changed.
