    The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation broadcast this report by Bill Cameron at a time when the Internet was a genuinely new phenomenon.

    I was interested in the date for the clip. Here's what I found on the CBC archive site:

    'A computer network called internet'Broadcast Date: Oct. 8, 1993, CBC

    The internet is no longer just for nerds. With some 15 million users across the planet, the global online network is being used to discuss everything from science to sex, murder trials to recipes. As we see in this clip, the media is playing catch up. No longer merely a science story, the internet is described as a "phenomenon," a "revolution," and "modulated anarchy." Bill Cameron looks at the internet's cultural impact.
