Last chance to apply for a 2-for-1 voucher to The Next Web Conference Latin America (28 & 29 August 2013)!
What browser is that??
It was a newsgroup reader, most likely something the guy's BBS send/sold him, it may even be aub
internet? never heard of iti doubt it'll work in the end.
I remember my first modem an old 14k baud. Those were the days.
Oh wow, that was a real trip down memory lane!
I think Internet is a pretty cool guy. eh is the information super-highway and doesnt afraid of anything.
youre doing it wrong, but nice try.
'There aren't walls of 'Go to hell' '
Not yet there weren't…
I think the $200 a year, 300 baud modem and lack of ease made it so.
Go to hell, Ben!
Anonymous? gawd, 4chan was prophecised since back then.And that thing on Canada: “Here in Canada: nothing yet. Borders still count for something”
Oslo was part of Sweden back in the 1990's?hehe.. Canadian taxpayers at it's finest.
This was not only intriguing, but almost eerie. Thank you for posting.
Internet looks cool, but I doubt it would change the world.
“It's a window to the World” hmm….sounds interesting. Maybe that gave Bill some idea on what to name his OS.
> Oslo> Swedish flag.
Too bad that thing about people not cursing at each other didnt last.. sigh
shut the fuck up
i like how he refers to the internet as “internet”, not “the internet”
i remember that TV program
i wonder if this guy with the big nose still thinks the same about “the internet”
“There's not a lot of cursing or swearing”what a fucking moron
This is how stupid we are all going to look in 15 years.
whoever here wants to talk about foot can go to hell
Anyone knows when this report was on air?
Funny how that 'regulator' thing turned out.
I feel that everything that is, or was, free in this world was badgered by a wide-grinned salesperson nudging someone with their elbow every few months with, “C'mon, how bout I just charge you a 9.99 more for this premium version”. Inevitably you end up paying $50 per month for crap like 'data plans'. Not because your device cant utilize the service, but because the company blocks you from it.
i went there, knocked on the door, but your mom said you weren't home
DId Peter Mansbridge ever have a full head of hair?
Its so painstakingly inaccurate now. I'd bet the majority of us just cringed.
1) This is brilliant… and still current, no?2) Oh dear, there's the “Got to Hell” idiot… hope you can delete it soon!3) Isn't it gr8, to CONNECT, learn, share, give, receive, procrastinate, lose sleep etc, etc!
newscaster is a n00b
Isn't the internet just about Porn?
Isn't the internet just for Porn? :d
damnit!….beat me to it…
Good old 1992

“Internet: The Forbin Project”
Now, the internet is faster, and, the perfect weapon (i.e. you can receive information about anyone, anywhere, anytime.) You can totally ruin someones identity, it has become the perfect tool for predators (of ALL kinds.) Even our government checks in on your personal and private conversations that you have with your loved ones across the country…. I believe we're evolving too quickly for our own good.
LOL @5:05! Oslo is in Norway, why is the Swedish flag on the screen?
Quite sweet and a bit sad. “Internet is growing at the rate of an embryonic brain” says the announcer, as though the Internet is a person. Then there are those lost souls with poor social skills, who are very polite and NEVER use foul language (snicker snicker), who can only communicate with others using a 300 baud modem and a screen that is refreshing at a rate I can't even imagine, all that CRT flickering. Users are portrayed with a lot of negativity, though that guy in the UK who said that it was the only way he could satisfy his “deep and abiding interest in all things Thai” was creepy!
Image on the still shot at the beginning looks a bit like one of those big-brain people of the future from an episode of The Outer Limits, or maybe an early Grey….? And there were issues with internet activity and leaked information/ disclosure back then! Did anyone catch what year “back then” was, when CNBC ran this?
THIS IS MY DAD. I kid you not. It is quite strange to see your late father, with his pouffy haircut sitting under hot TV lights in the attic of your childhood home, talking to strangers on the internet on a green-and-black computer screen. I must have been about 11 when this was made. My Dad had a great sense of humour and would definitely have gotten a kick out of seeing this go viral. He was a foreign correspondent for the CBC for a long time and reported from war zones in Mozambique, Nicaragua, Jordan and Croatia during the late 80′s early 90′s. There a tape somewhere of him in a town in Croatia addressing the camera while mortars are falling outside the building. So please don’t judge him by this video alone!
That’s right. I bet you didn’t even know that the internet was around in 1905, either.
(DemDude will be happy to know I used Wikipedia to find the date the union between Sweden and Norway ended. God, I would be helpless without the internet for looking up basic information.)
a strange self control within the people, “no whole pages of got to hell”
it was utopia!
Then came 4Chan
I lol’d when he said we are anonymous
LOL Back in the good ol’ days. Before every moron in the world found the internet.
DAMN YOU AOL!!!!
I like how he talks about how people aren’t put down and they don’t curse and now that is almost all you get.
Where’s the time-machine…
