An early report about "Internet"

A blast from the past– the late 1980s or so? I’m not sure. Two curious things about this piece include a reference to an early (well, in Internet terms) censorship case in Canada where some material on an ongoing trial that wasn’t supposed to be released to the public was on Internet, and, more noticeably, that there’s no article here– that is, it’s “Internet” and not “The Internet,” and certainly not “the internet.”

One Response to An early report about "Internet"

    Did a little research: seems that it’s from 1993 (according to the sources that give a date, anyhow), so just about the same time “World Wide Web” and “information superhighway” were starting to creep into the media. Interesting clip.
