'What Is Internet, Anyway?' - An Urlesque Compilation of Early Internet Clips
Watching Bryant Gumbel incredulously ask what the internet was in a 1994 'Today Show' clip got me thinking how clueless most of us were in the early 1990s when the World Wide Web began to explode.
Not surprisingly, a look back at news reports, commercials and instructional videos at the time yields a bounty of unintentional humor. Consider this video I put together a time capsule of the Wild West days.
We laugh now, but wait ten years, when we'll see similar videos about blogs and Twitter (oh god, the "haha, I don't know what verbs to use! Twit! Twote! Twat!" jokes).
