Fringe Wayback Machine: Brain Shapiro revisits online predictions from 1995 in A FEW THOUSAND UPGRADES LATER

    Fringe Wayback Machine: Brain Shapiro revisits online predictions from 1995 in A FEW THOUSAND UPGRADES LATER
    In 1995, there was no Google or Facebook or Amazon, no smartphones or tablets, nothing to upgrade or download. But there was an Internet with email and chatrooms and simple websites. That year, master's student Brian Shapiro asked six folks their thoughts and predictions on computer technology and the internet, creating an Anna Deavere Smith-style theater show from the transcripts.
