The geeks who made all this possible

This is most fascinating. A film from 1972 in which the Supraluxe fore-fathers discuss the future possibilities that connecting computers together will enable. They stop just short of predicting blogging.

Watch. Learn.

UPDATE: Google has apparently pulled this video, probably due to its popularity. On behalf of Supraluxe, sorry - it was a very cool short movie. To Google: bite me.

The Wild Hockey Fan links seem to work, although I modified them to add a "www" before the domain name in case that's preventing you from accessing them.

Regarding the internet video, Google has pulled it, apparently. It was a remarkable video from 1972 of total geeks correctly predicting that inconnected computers (the internet) would radically alter our lives. They were like oracles.
