Flashback: The Internet in 1995 on MTV News [Video]


----------------

This video is so old that Billy Corgan, Dave Matthews and Moby still had hair. Also, people knew who they were. Coolio shows up, which seems as though it bears mentioning.

Watch as the world discovers email, chat, and Twinkie haiku. The video also¬†warns that the World Wide Web is filled with naughty material, and “the hypersensitive, the humor impaired and Puritans of every stripe” need not apply. If only 1995 had any idea. (Lookin’ at you, Nyan Cat.)

“Where can I hook up my modem?” – Sandra Bullock, because she was super-techy.

  1. 1995: David Bennahum: CYBER JOURNALIST.
    2011: David Bennahum: IDK, he's probably got a blog or something.

  2. Special address truck stops called "Web Sites"

    I'm sure that was a weird phrase back then. And to think I was only 3 at the time.
