What the internet future looked like in 1995

ShinyJess Internet, Tech Digest news 11 Comments

This MTV clip from 1995 is excellent. It shows reporters and celebrities telling us all about this wonderful new thing called the “internet” – all of a sudden it’s everywhere and it’s so popular! (Thanks, Sandra Bullock.)

While a lot has changed, the issues of the internet as of 1995 weren’t all that different from what they are nowadays, actually. Then as now, the web was mostly being used for chatting to like-minded people. But there was a lot more fear around it, with much concern about hackers and debates about protecting children from porn. Not that you could really look at pictures, porn or otherwise, back then, with dial-up being the connection of the day. Remember those crackly modems? We don’t miss those. The word “cyber”, on the other hand, that looks due for a revival. Who’s with me?
