Crises Precipitate Change

Check this out... a Boston-area news report from 1988 covering a computer virus, which at the time was a brand new threat to the universe.

Overly melodramatic and cheesy Boston TV channel news report about a computer virus outbreak discovered by MIT nerds. Fun because they don't just report on the virus - they interview geeks, and insert random clips from retro videogames and TV movies to illustrate what a virus is. Remember, this was 1988!

"Life in the modern world has a new anxiety these days... just as we've become totally dependent on our computers they are being stalked by saboteurs!"
