Internet back in the day…

2/12/2009:

Today, we have a couple great archival videos about how the “internet” was perceived over 25 years ago.

Boy, if the newspapers only picked up on that rather than waiting way too long… Oh well – now they’re scrambling like idiots. You gotta be quick these days, right? Move it or lose it!

The S.F. Examiner didn’t stand a chance. In 2002 it was redesigned as a tabloid “to integrate color and reflect the influence of the Internet on readers,” and the following year they started giving it away for free.

I think I still have a CoCo and an Apple IIc in storage somewhere. Bought a busted Timex Sinclair for $5 once. Once.

memory lane… 300 baud modems, tape drives…

Going to K-Mart and ending the demo on the computers on display and writing a new one that endlessly looped K-Mart sucks… Yes it was immature, but I wasn’t even a teen yet…

Had a Vic 20, a C64, Amigas… first place I was online was the Eastern C-Board, a BBS run by two members of the South Jersey Commador Users Group.

Still own a Amiga 4000 with a Video Toaster and LightWave.
