Retro Computing Shows

In the same vein as CBC’s 1993 story A Network Called “Internet”, there are three new retro computing talk-show clips posted to archive.org: Battle of the Browsers, from 1997; Spreadsheet Wars from 1988; and DOS to Mac and Back from 1989.

I love retro-geek stuff like this. Unfortunately, the clips are two gigs each so I won’t be seeing them anytime soon. Consider this a “save it for later” post. (Edit: the Spreadsheet Wars clip has a smaller, low-res version. After the spreadsheet stuff, they get into a news segment where they talk about the brand new Mac, with 4MB of RAM and a 80MB hard-drive for only $7000!).
