Well I sort was breathlessly anticipating what would become the internet.
One of my first favorite shows when I was little was “Batman”, and I was blown Away by the “Bat-Computer”, a device that would allow one to ask any question and get a quick, instant answer on anything.
Decades later when I was using Google for the first time, I sat in amazement and said out loud to some coworkers near by “My God. we now have the Bat-Computer!”*
*I had been using Search Engines for years at that point and although they were helpful, they also tended to be wildly wrong and loaded with lots of extraneous junk. Google was the first engine that consistently nailed it the first time.
