What if Social Media were invented in the 80s
- Feb 05, 2013
If Social Media was built in the days of DOS, 14.4 Kbps modems and Netscape Navigator, they would have looked very different. Well Kinna McInroe and Jo Luijten made this ambition from the past into a reality. This reality truly became a sensation and some of these videos were broadcasted on television and in the Nitehawk Cinema from New York City.
After seeing the British BBC show 'Look around you', Jo Luijten was inspired by the idea of creating a nonexistent world in the past. Using old software, like QuickBASIC 4.5 and MS-Paint, he created several '80s and '90s versions of contemporary social media and video games. Jo Luijten's girlfriend Kinna McInroe is the voice-over of the 'Wonders of the World Wide Web' videos.
