Rathergate anniversary - 20 days and counting - roots of the internet explosion

The video linked here is from a Canadian newscast. I estimate the date of the broadcast to be in the mid-1990's. The internet was new to most people and the reporters were only beginning to see the possibilities. While this broadcast obviously pre-dated Rathergate by about a decade, it would only be a matter of time before the networks would be rendered obsolete. As the anchorman stated in the broadcast:

There's a revolution going on in rec-rooms, offices and classrooms around the world. A revolution in which 15 MILLION PEOPLE are taking part.
