Awesome book!

The first time I downloaded a video from the Internet was 1994. A clip 
of an animation, a spaceship! The details are documented in my How to 
Advertise on the Internet text (1994).

Ahh, the heady days of Usenet newsgroups ucb.digital-video, 
comp.multimedia, an alt.binaries.multimedia. Also MBONE video 
conferencing in 1994 at the blistering speed of 15 frames per second.
