    Link: The Internet, Invented 1934 - I thought Al Gore invented the internet in the `80s.

    Um, right at the start, she says 1934, but the subtitles say 1932? Ludicrous!

    Oral Data? Really? I`d stick with the word sound. Seems more effective.

    The internet was so not invented in 1934, unless it was a product. Which I won`t know because I am not going to watch the video.

    creepy thought, but it wasn`t the internet invented then, it was the idea of an easier way to retrieve knowledge.

    ElDavo, you`re an idiot. That wasn`t a stupid video. It was about a visionary who had great ideas. People like him allow you to post retarded comments like you did. Otherwise there would be no interwebs.

    You`re pretty ignorant if you think this video is stupid. Some times things spark off the ideas to make new things, or are even ignored until later looked back on. This is one of the ideas which could be viewed in both ways.

    Very informative and really makes you think about all the other household devices that were thought up, before the inventor produced them.

    Yes the internet was invented in 1932. Just as the time machine was invented by H. G. Wells.

    Nooo! Save the book! If anything, this guy invented the (Sony or i or whatever) Reader. It`s interesting, but the book will live far longer than any tech geek will predict.

    If you think about it, a lot of things based off ideas were invented LONG before people "made" them. Look at how many things Leonardo davinci made, drawings and ideas, and a lot can be said about others in the past as well.

    People always expect new inventions or concepts to be only used for noble purposes.

    Big mistake there, fancy inventor man.

    Actually, a somewhat modern form was invented in 1928.

    I still think it`s a series of tubes. I mean, I guess you could put a book in the tubes. It would have to be the right size though or you`d have to cut the book in half or something to fit it in. Also, books can be kind of bulky, and when the tubes get clogged with all the pornos racing around, the book might not make it where you want it to go. Also it could get some porno on it.

    This video seems to be describing something different though. It looks like this is some kind of wired network that accesses the pornos directly instead of sending them through a series of tubes. I don`t know why we don`t just do that instead of this tube nonsense.

    "anyone notice at the beginning that the woman said 1934 but the screen sain 1932?"

    Read the comments much? I believe Scuff89 pointed that out, somewhere around the first post.

    its real but he didn`t make it, it was just a concept. i mean the last lines " an edifice for the greatest human thought" yeah i think he was a little off there.
