Back in 1993, KQED produced a 5-part series called "Virtual World." It was a weeklong run of reports looking at how the “information superhighway” was impacting society. Reporters examined how emerging technologies in Silicon Valley were affecting things like education, work-life balance and consumption habits. The goal was to "take a moment to examine the past and look at possible futures."
