In the early 90s, and to some extent even now, the internet was a lot like outer space. Its reach was vast, uncharted and widely unknown. The parts that we could grasp were mesmerizing, but they were still only a small fraction of what was to come.

It was run mostly by the same record labels that saw the rise and fall of cassette tapes, compact discs and mini discs.
