The Internet way back in ’97

May 17, 2006 at 3:01 am | Posted in history | Leave a comment

This American Life presents one of its classic radio shows called "How We Talked Back Then".  The second act discusses the wonders of the Internet (in 1997) with modern day commentary.  The hosts asked the question, "Are people having experiences on the Internet they wouldn't have anywhere else?" and have now added 2006 commentary to talk about how this would fit with our modern Internet.

This is a rare opportunity to experience history that has occurred in our lifetimes but still seems ancient.
