Fifth Graders in 1995 Video Predicted the Things We Love About the Web

A 1995 public service announcement created by 5th graders to tout the brand-new Internet is making the rounds online, and for good reason: Their predictions all came true.

These Ray Bjork Elementary School students living in Helena, Montana produced a video answering the question, "Why should I be on the Internet?" Their answers, describing the state of the Internety "by the time we're in college," are jaw-droppingly true to the reasons we're all online today. They even knew we would be obsessed with cats, highlighting what appears to be a contemporaneous “Feline Information Page.”

Viewers in 1995 were impressed, too. According to the video's YouTube description, "the production won a local local ADDY Award in 1996 for Best PSA."
