Is this the most prescient 4 minutes of TV ever?

So, here we have a young Maggie Philbin, all Northern vowels and key word stuffing (she says Information Superhighway about 16 times in this short clip), bigging up the potential of “something called the internet” (except she keeps calling it the Information Superhighway).

Bill Clinton had it but John Major didn’t.

That’s America for ya.

Way, way, back in 1994 the t’internet, as we all know and love it today (let’s face it you wouldn’t be reading this without it) was simply a Tomorrow’s World feature.

But Maggie’s on fire predicting almost to a T the impact it could, and has, made.

I hope she put her coupon on that day too.

  1. The worst you can do is be considered spam or a sales page.

    Of course, models like pay per click are fraught with hazards.
    These sites are designed to engage consumers in an interaction that will move them
    closer to a purchase or other marketing outcome.
