Internet After Hours
Your Guide to Finding Games, Entertainment, and Just Plain Weirdness on the Internet
Eddy
1994

Sounds like this newfangled Internet is a bit sketchy. This is still the infancy of the Internet for the general user. This book is highlighting the entertaining and/or weird parts of the Internet. (Note the interest in vending machines at certain universities around the world.) This is another one of those quaint books on the early days of the Internet. In 2020, I doubt one has to work that hard at finding weird stuff on the Internet.

  1. Any book on the Internet is going to be obsolescent in an hour, obsolete by the end of the day, an antique in a week, and prehistoric by the end of the month.

  2. I got the internet for the first time in 1998, and it’s amazing how much things had changed in such a short amount of time! My family had AOL, so Telnet and finger sites are all French to me.

  3. Oh thank you! Throw back Thursday came a little early. This was a fun trip down memory lane. I hope a museum of computing history keeps a copy of this.

  4. From 1994, so the person at wicat.com who came up with the server name “spam” would shortly probably feel really let down by those two green card irritators from Arizona.
