Goodbye Internet 1.0

So, I noticed today that we’re going to say farewell to Teletext next year: http://www.t3.com/news/teletext-to-depart-our-screens-in-2010?=39691

And it got me thinking.  When I was a kid, you just had telly with three channels.  And then Channel 4 came along.  And Teletext was this clunky, but cool, thing in the background. 

And now we’re all wifi’d and iPhone’d up and get anything, any place, any time.  How very far we’ve come – and thank you Teletext for starting us all on that journey.
