    Teh intarwebz, the internets, and the ever-annoying "cyber space"... Any of these would have been acceptable considering he called it "internet". It`s THE internet. It isn`t some supreme being that wishes for its minions to call it "internet". The guy says it is a tool, except nobody asks "Pass me screwdriver" or "Hand me wrench" or "Make sure drill is off".

    Amazing, too, to consider our machines and how they`re different from then! Remember 5.5 inch floppies? That was the standard. Cassette tape drives were phasing out. A super large hard drive would have been 100 Megabytes or so (if memory serves) and modems connected at 14.4 kbps. Now look at our machines! And the `net! Pretty cool to compare. :-)

    I like the one comment they aired from that loser chick in Toronto.

    "It has more soul than any human being I know."

    ...kind of an early warning that foreshadowed what happens when you spend to much time on Internet.

    I wish the popularity of the internet stopped when it started, because then our society wouldn`t have lost so many brain cells from porn and retarded internet communities.

    the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It`s not a big truck.
    It`s a series of tubes.

    Way back then, I was 15 and just learning about "InterNet." Sounded pretty cool, but my folks wouldn`t get a computer even when I said I would only use it for homework.

    Hmmm... Now there`s stories almost daily about the evils of "Internet".

    And, as most other people have said: It`ll never catch on.

    Did the internet really look like that back then? No pictures... All the same font... Boring! Who would want to use that? It looked like they didn`t even have an address bar. Lol.

    instead of posting the EXACT same thing as everyone else is: "what`s the internet?" or "It`ll never catch on", I will use my OWN mind to develop a post that I thought of. GET A MIND OF YOUR OWN FOR F*CK SAKES!!"
    Anyway, I was in gr. 1 or 2 when this first aired, on CBC. We never got the internet until about 2002, and we`re still using the same computer; a Dell Dimension 2200. Whooo! Also, my school never got the internet until about 1998, 99, so unlike you young kids, I CAN imagine a world without the internet. You know what we did for fun? we played Super Nintendo all day haha. and they thought OUR generation was pampered, haha we had cassettes, cable TV had 40 channels, that is, if you had cable, hardly anyone had Satelite TV or a computer, and all our video games were 16 bit, everything was built out of inferior material, the prime minister of Canada was a communist, etc. Ah, the `90s lol

    That was funny to watch it sure marked a change of wordwide communication as we knew it. We didn`t get the internet until 1996 and even then it was still just starting out, very few people had it and it was reeeally slow. I totally remember how long pics used to load lol. Broadband is heaven sent, let me tell ya. Gotta love how they switched the norwegian flag with a swedish one, I`m norwegian too and couldn`t help but notice it. Today I could never imagine being without the internet, it has opened a whole new world for me. I`ve made new friends over the net and discovered new music I would never hear otherwise. Plus I`ve learned a whole lot too by finding sites with great info when using the net for homework or just random surfing. I freakin LOVE the internet.
