The Information Superhighway
90 words, 1 minute

Imagine a world where every word ever written, every picture ever painted, and every film ever shot could be viewed instantly in your home via an Information Superhighway - a high-capacity digital communications network.

What that would mean, is you could transform your home into a mammoth interactive entertainment centre; with the odd stock exchange and shopping centre thrown in.

It sounds pretty grand, but it all comes down to computers communicating. And in fact, that’s already happening on something called the internet…

Sounds nice.
