I’m proud to say that I’m from the early generation of Internet users, and the fastest modem I got is the black USR 56k modem, It was the monster back in the day and the fastest and most desirable gadget. I still remember how I used to wait for a single image to be opened. Do errands and come back to see it was still loading. Good times! Now, A VHS tape from 1996 demonstrates what the internet looked like in its early days and it is a video for younger generation to watch the struggle we faced back in the day. The instructor takes viewers through the exciting world of “Hyper Text Transport Protocols“, “Universal Resources Locators“ Commonly known as HTTP and URL.
Transferred from a VHS video tape, this 1996 video shows how to use a PC and how to use the PC to access the new “world wide web.” I had my first website that year. It was a one pager which got an average of one visit per day, which wasn’t too bad back then. I’m guessing the average 1st grader knows more about using a PC and the internet than this professional instructional video is teaching. You won’t believe how backwards the state of PC and internet use 15 years will seem to you as you watch.
