Time Machine Video of the Day: News Report on Computer Viruses in 1988
This video was three minutes of pure gold. The effing 1980’s huh? What a weird decade. Floppy disks, electronic mail, people who look like this…
Just a strange strange time. These MIT bros are supposed to be the smartest people on the planet, and yet they got their system hacked by a computer virus in 1988. That’s pathetic. It’s not like they got an electronic mail promising an Anna Kournikova sex tape and everyone knows that is the only way to get a computer virus. Clean it up MIT.
PS: The computer games in this video look effing awful. Like the worst games ever. Yet…it’s like two years away from a golden age of video games. Oregon Trail and Duck Hunt were right around the corner. I killed so many buffalos in Oregon Trail my family didn’t know what to do with them. All that extra buffalo meat made fording rivers nearly impossible.
