Internet In 1994 May Be Similar To Bitcoin In 2013

I came across this video earlier today and thought that there might be something to be said about the confusion over the internet in 1994 (as demonstrated in this YouTube clip) and the similarities we encounter when enduring a present-day public dialogue over bitcoin and other virtual currencies. The initial confusion is met with immediate skepticism before complete dismissal of the new concept. Of course hindsight is 20/20, but everyone of those anchors at NBC are most likely embarrassed by this video and probably wish the clip was destroyed forever. Does 1994 and 2013 illustrate people’s inherent unwillingness to embrace change?
