Predicting the Internet

As far as I can tell, no astrologers were harmed, or indeed involved, in the making of this 1969 video. The predictions, as far as they go, have proved to be near enough spot-on though. Apart from one quote from the clip which made me chuckle:
"What the wife selects on her console, will be paid for by the husband at his counterpart console."
It seems that back in 1969, in the USA, little wifeys were still, erm.... beholden to their lords & masters.

What wasn't foreseen, at least in this video: spam, porn sites, viruses, social networking.....etc. etc. etc.

Dialup Dementia does me in yet again.
I'll have to watch when I'm back in Highspeed Heaven.
And you won't believe what a nasty activist I've become out here in this neglected outport...!
Oh yes you would. You've got my chart!
I'm totally intrigued with this 'tube....
