There's an old CBC Newsworld report from 1993 re-circulating via YouTube and the branding / media tech blogs. If you missed its first viral viewing last summer, its catching on once again, touting something new (at the time) called "Internet", which cost about $200 a year to use. All you needed back then (in addition to the $200)? A personal computer (note the pre-Windows PC OS used in the background) and a phone hookup to be up and running "data exchanges" around the world with the other 15 million users.
Pretty amazing trip back in time...
When can we get "Internet" costs back down to only $200 a year?
