The Early Internet – Clips from the 90s & early 2000s

Katie Couric and the rest of the Today Show crew  don’t understand what the internet is in 1994 

DotComedy was an ABC show from 2000 that was one of the early attempts at bringing internet humor to TV screens. From what I can tell it never really did very well in the ratings.

Also from DotComedy, their correspondant, Katie Puckrik visits the creator of airsicknessbags.com, which was an online museum of air sickness bags throughout the decades. 

And this digital archive actually still exists!  I actually found another interview with this guy that I enjoyed. “Daddy loves” his airsick bags. 

I don’t know much about the origin of this clip, other than the fact that it was created by Apple computers in the 90s. I thought it was an early 90s thing, but according to the Cult of Mac blog, it was apparently made in 1997. 

This one’s a classic, but I felt as if I should include it. The Kids Guide to the Internet. 

 

Don’t forget, ladies! The Internet is not just for boys!
