Within 30 minutes of viewing this bit of CBC archival footage I turned on the news to hear that the reporter Bill Cameron had died.
Ah memories-I think that 1993 was the year I did my first school project using the internet. It involved testing the pH level of the rain in our area and comparing it to other classes somewhere in the US. It was the middle of winter so all we could do was melt snow and test that using those little strips. Do you know how long it takes to melt a bucket of snow? I didn't either.
At that time probably 2 students in my Grade 5/6 class had 'heard of the internet'. We were using Pine or Elm mail to communicate. So primitive.
