If there's one thing the Web is NOT, it's "idiot proof."

That didn't take long to get through the hopper.

I'm just glad they got Moby's opinion. Can you imagine what this story would have been without Moby's opinion?

I actually found that very issue of Time magazine a few years ago, while helping clean out a storage room at my college that had sat unused for roughly a decade. It goes to great lengths to tell us that not only is the entire internet riddled with kiddie porn, but that it's practically impossible for your child NOT to stumble on it by accident, and that this will then alert child predators to their exact location.

The Legendary Godzilla Site got me so excited, I said to myself, "Man! I've got to submit that one to PoE!"

...and now I'm sad. :(

Me too. Damn I miss that Godzilla site!

I would argue this isn't as 90s as you might think. This is actually a pretty level-headed piece about the internet which is amazing for the time period, where most news stories about the internet were written by people who could barely use solar calculators and for whom the internet was some sci-fi concept from a fantasy world.

Coolio talking about the 'information superhighway' isn't 90s enough for you?

Little did they know that audiences of the future would be the most confused about why they were interviewing so many musicians.

I think it was Newt Gingrich sounding reasonable that really made me feel like I was looking into some alternate dimension.

Sometimes I long for the good old days when the internet was the internet, and the morons were all corralled into a strange place by the name of AOL.

I should start using the internet.

Every video on the Internet in 1995 was a 2 inch square .MOV file.

5 for the comparison to the Trucker fad of the 70s.
