The Internet at 40


I was interviewed recently by The Guardian as part of their "Internet at 40" project. They shot some video at the university, and it's now available online here. You need to click through to 1979 to see my piece (or skip 1979 if you prefer to avoid it). I think they chose 1979 because that's the only date I mention, when describing people playing over the Internet-to-be; MUD itself began in 1978.

Even though I appear to be mad at times, I nevertheless come across as a lot saner than I thought I would, which I suppose is a plus.
