Newspapers on the Internet, 1981 ...

In 1981, I had a bad haircut, my first driver's license and was in a basic computing class at Lincoln (Neb.) Northeast High School. I was a year away from my first "home computer," a Commodore 64. And I wrote my school newspaper stories on a typewriter.

In 1981, KRON TV in San Francisco aired this news story about the Internet and its possible impact on daily newspapers. Now, almost 30 years later, it's kind of eerie to see a story like this, particularly the ending. It was a sign of things to come.
