Remember back in the mid-90s when the Internet was this strange, weird thing that nobody understood but the technologically savvy and those with disposable income and an urge to be on the cutting edge of technology? I do, but only barely. Well, apparently, back in 1994, Julia Stiles was a guest on the PBS show Ghost Writer. Fittingly enough, she plays a little hacker girl with a gypsy nose ring, crazy curly hair, and an awesome toque. Feast your eyes on 1994′s idea of what the Internet was like, console cowboy.
This is probably the best thing ever, especially in hindsight. Apparently, in 1994, someone on Ghost Writer‘s staff was a big William Gibson fan, hence the Neuromancer reference. Little did I know that my indulgence in William Gibson (about 7 years after this aired) would be my preparation for next wave, new wave, and dream wave.
