Future Past: 1967 Film Looks at Futuristic World of 1999

This bit of film from 1969 shows what it will be like to use something we now call the World Wide Web circa 1999. It's pretty spot-on, except nowhere is there mention of me and my blog. Hmph!

It runs just under 2 minutes and is narrated by Alexander Scourby. You know Scourby's distinctive velvety tones if you watched TV in the 1960s. I remember his voice from those Jacques Cousteau specials in the 1960s.

Wow, that is kinda creepily accurate. Right down to my wife's hairstyle!
