A look back at a 1981 news segment that covers the Internet and the eventual push to online media. At the time, 8 newspapers were currently part of the network delivering their daily news via this system. The “paper” included all text, but not images or classifieds.

The segment closes with a look at a newspaper salesman who would potentially become structurally unemployed when the need for physical papers vanishes.
