And we use it to post videos of a monkey peeing in its mouth. And 4chan memes.

In other words, we have made it a million times better than this guy imagined.

IT'S AN ORANGUTAN DAMMIT

I've always thought the things we put on the internet are even more remarkable than the technology itself. Mass use of the internet is still too recent for this to be entirely evident, but we're archiving the thoughts, works, and mere OPINIONS of an enormous segment of the population, which may well be just as available to random people one hundred years from now... I wish this technology had existed when this man was writing, because reading 1934 Facebook pages would be much more intimate than 1934 newspapers, but a lot less creepy than old letters or private diary entries.

Basically what I'm saying is I'm still pissed off that chet deleted most of my posts.

Dude predicted Youtube. Move over, Nostradamus!

My hat's off to this guy. Very cool.

Also, from now on I'm saying "radiated library" instead of "internet." Sounds so much cooler.

Ditto, this made me smile like mad :D

The Radiated Library and The Televised Book are too good not to be names of bands or albums or something.

Are pedophiles using televised books to get to your children?

I'd love to get a hand on that. The imagery is wonderful.

Yeah, the TV barely existed in 1934.

1:12 - "The most powerful works for the diffusion of human thought." Hey, isn't that the Wikipedia logo?

Holy shit, that's uncanny.

I call bullshit.

This was some asshole from the future who fucked up and went back in time. He published some shit he knew would happen.

Either that, or that was some goddamn awesome shot in the dark.

It looks like he predicted Mythbusters. I could have sworn I saw Adam and Jamie in his drawings.
