KRON

By Deane Barker on May 10, 2009

1981 primitive Internet report on KRON: This is a news report from 1981 about eight newspapers who were letting their users download the newspapers over dial-up modem. It’s worth watching for some perspective on how far we’ve come.

I love the caption under one of the people’s names: “Owns Home Computer.”

  1. It only cost two hours of downloading time and $10 for the data transfer. Nice. And remember you can print it, too!
