In 1995 I attended a conference held by Sun Microsystems. It was attended by all of the major TV and newspaper big-wigs and was intended as a wake up call....."the internet is comming"

They showed us all sorts of techie stuff like what a broadband connection will enable the end user to see and a cool touch screen tablet computer that you could fold in half. The hardware this guy had still blows me away and it was 15 years ago.

Then came the point of the whole thing. If anyone can have a website of there own with sound, video, and even user interaction that would make everyone of them a competitor rather than a viewer. They predicted one TV channel (interactive web site) for every 30 people on the planet.

The best thing about the presentation was that he had a site that was exactly the sort of thing he was talking about running in the backgound.

It blew us all away, it was awesome and a bit scarry at the same time. The networks didn't know what to do........and still don't
