In 1996, well for a start, no one would have read this. Blogging wasn’t a ‘thing’. Most business people would be using their Pentium powered PCs for their typing (or maybe for playing Solitaire – still a novelty! – on their CRT monitors) using Windows 95, and they might be using the cool new CD-R technology to share content. Broadband wouldn’t be around in a real sense for another four years, so sharing data over the web was definitely not the norm.
