Fox's Brit Hume: Nostradamus he's not.

Reported by Chrish - October 5, 2005

I came across this prediction by Brit Hume on NNDB.com and thought you'd enjoy:

Prediction from a 1995 interview:

"The Internet is an interesting phenomenon. My sense of it is that in ten years, or fifteen perhaps, we'll all be saying, 'Hey, you remember the Internet?' And we'll all laugh about it. It reminds me of the bulletin board world that existed ten years ago. There was tremendous enthusiasm and excitement among computer buffs about all the things that were possible in that domain. And of course in those days we were talking about the early days of CompuServe and some of the same information services, and there was some of the same enthusiasm expressed there about educational opportunity and e-mail and all the things you could do. It seems to me distinctly possible that a number of people, particularly in the academic world, are getting important work done with help from the Internet, but it is not at all clear to me that it is a very widespread situation."

Well who's laughing now? (I am, for one.) It's indicative of the "forward-thinking" capabilities of the regressive party.
