Internet Archæology

Workshop.jpg Cleaning off the old blackboard which is now in my workshop I noticed this ghost image on it. Dating from 1995 when I was having to explain what "The Internet" was and how companies shouldn't worry their heads as to what happened in "the cloud" and just give me the money and I would connect them up. It seems like a lifetime ago.

A passing fad they said, you'll never make any money out of it, I don't think any of us back then dreamt how it would change everything, it seemed so slow to get people interested and to start using it, even when Alta Vista was boasting that it had indexed Ten Million pages! What more could you want?
