  • predicting the internet

    I'm listening to an internet radio station that plays old radio plays from the '40s. The one that's on now is a science fiction from 1948 - it's about things called "logics" that are machines that know everything, they are all hooked up to a "network" and you can ask them anything and get an answer - imagine in 1948 someone thought of the internet!!

    The play is about the disastrous results when the "logics" take over the world, but on the way to disaster the characters are describing the uses of computers and the information available on the 'net in amazing detail....

    and I thought I was born BEFORE computers were invented....

    Take care, Margaret
