This is a great piece of digital history. In 1981, newspapers were exploring the possibility of people using their computers to read the news. KRON 4’s Steve Newman was there to report. The most amazing part of this story isn’t that people would try to use the service in 1981, but that newspapers had the discretionary income to even attempt this.
It took 2 hours to download the “telepaper” back in 81. We have come a long way.
