The Agenda in the Summer's journey into TVO's video vault continues with a look at how technology has evolved over the years. In the beginning, the internet presented a novel way to learn and communicate. In 1996, tech-savvy author Cory Doctorow (who at the time was a ,webmaster,) and tech executive Bill Washburn visited Studio 2 to convince Steve Paikin that the internet wasn't just a flash-in-the-pan, and to predict its future, including some of the marvels we enjoy today: internet shopping and ordering food online. Then, fast forward to 2019, tech experts (including a reprise by Doctorow) discussed the evolution of the internet, from social media's communication and social-movement force to the enthrall of Amazon and Google.
