Max Headroom

http://img.nattawat.org/images/f5hf5uzv04a0z9fe243l.jpg

This series ended probably longer ago than most of our fellow members have lived, but I think it deserves at least a topic to discuss it. IIRC back in the days virtual Max was even featured as moderator on MTV smile

Maybe you want to catch up with the two seasons of 6 and 8 episodes. You don't need to search on your attic for old VHS tapes you can nowadays even get this as DVDRip wink

Remember that this show was on air when there wasn't even the WWW around wink

Sorry - you are very wrong!!! Don't confuse the WWW with the internet - which is nowadays almost equivalent! The internet basically evolved from military networks in the 60's true, but the WWW - as we use it today with HTTP - was a proposal by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990. And Max Headroom season 2 aired 1987 tongue

Re: Max Headroom

Indeed, think of the internet as a large box.  The WWW is only a small item within that box.  Other item in that box include Email, P2P traffic and FTP - to name just a few.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

I was under the impression that Al Gore created the "Internets"  cool   

During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.

And Yes I am old enough to remember Max Headroom.

Max Headroom was cool back in the day, but it wasn't just a TV show, it made it to a movie and a computer game.

So there.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.
