Going on the internet may be as natural as reading a book now, but back in the ’90s the concept seemed strange and new. Here’s a funny compilation of people trying to explain exactly what the internet is.
Some suggestions include “a city,” “a network of networks,” and “that big computer at work.”
Growing up as a kid in the ’90s, I remember teachers using words like “The information superhighway” and “surfing” to describe what the internet was.
Hell, I even remember taking classes on the mere concept on e-mail in elementary school. If anyone you know still uses an AOL email account, be sure to send them this video for some laughs.
