Don't let the Groundlings, Second City, Upright Citizen's Brigade, or any other improv troupe/class know about your theory.

We also had BBSs and Usenet, but yes, it was obvious to us by about 1985 that this Internet thing was likely to succeed once we got it more widely into civilian hands.

However, I remember the wailing and garment rending that went on in academia when private entities were allowed in. If it had been up to them, nobody outside of a government lab or college would have had access to the internet, especially grubby little businessmen.

Ah, but the grumpy big businessmen weren't going to put up with that.  Mainly the ones named things like Vittorio, and Nunzio.  Maybe Vincenzo, ah?  They get so impatient...

/and send around grumpy REALLY BIG subordinates
//with excellent convincification skills in order to 'splain to you'se
///sure, there are disadvantages to openin' it up.  But the hospital is gonna be the big disadvantage of keeping it closed - that'd be a shame <shakes head sadly>  Wouldn't that be a shame, Tony?
