Dawn of the Web: an oral history - Ideas - The Boston Globe
Dawn of the Web: an oral history - Ideas - The Boston Globe: SUDBURY: We had people who were using the cafe computers the way you’d use Wi-Fi now—like, they were tech savvy, they knew what they needed to do, but they needed access because they needed to look something up or send an e-mail....And then there were people who just wanted to see what it was like. They just wanted to go look at a website. It was sort of just very novel to them, and they would just click around on things. Because back then, clicking around on things was wildly entertaining, because it was so novel....It sounds corny, but it blew people’s minds.
