Abstract

Imagine a world without Google, without Amazon, without Wikipedia, without broadband and without the need for them. This is our world ten years ago in 1995. In 1995 when Kevin Mitnick was arrested by the FBI and charged with breaking into some of the United States' most "secure" computers systems; when AFC Ajax beat AC Milan 1-0 to win the Champions League; when the oldest flute, made by Neanderthal maybe from the phalanges of a Neanderthal mammoth, was found by Dr. Ivan Turk; when "Toy Story", the world's first feature-length completely computer-animated movie, could be seen at cinemas together with Mel Gibson running all over the Scottish highlands with his blue painted face roaring "Aaaaaa" and "Grrrrr"; when Netscape launched its initial public offering; when Microsoft released Windows 95 without a web browser, because why would anyone need it; and when the Walter Ostanek band received the Grammy Awards in polka category. Congratulations!
