You Need To See This Video (1981 TV Report On Birth Of Internet News)

“Imagine, if you will, sitting down to your morning coffee, turning on your home computer to see the day’s newspaper. Well, it’s not as far-fetched as it may seem.”
Thus begins this video of a 1981 KRON report predicting the rise of news reporting on the internet.
You need to see this, it’s pure gold.

Well, gollll-ee!! What will they think of next?
And what will we be using thirty years from now that makes us laugh at primitive tech like laptops and cable internet access?

I love the caption of the guy using the service - it states that he “owns home computer,” like that’s a highly odd thing (which it was back then).
