Flashback: World Wide Wireless

A very interesting article over at Newspaper and Technology:

"As a disruptive new advertising medium, the Internet is nothing new, really. There are strong parallels over the past century to draw from, whether it's the onset of radio in the 1920s, broadcast television in the 1950s or cable TV in the 1980s. In fact, the terms “wireless and "www" began appearing in ads 85 years ago, long before they became part of the everyday media lexicon. In 1920, RCA's logos and advertisements touted its own WWW - "World Wide Wireless" - with an image of the Earth coined with the words on the front of their annual report. Its emerging product, of course, was radio, or wireless telephony."
