The Internet, 1969

Cool vid, nice that they foresaw flat screens way back then when your average Joe was still checking his vacuum tubes at the local drugstore. Love the cut to the husband at 0:40... he looks so dismayed .

Internet has been perhaps the most outstanding innovation in the field of communication in the history of mankind. It's great to see how technology is evolving so fast.
