So, I was playing City of Heroes, and a thought came to me. This game was released in 2004 (It’s had a few graphical upgrades since then, but this demo doesn’t really show them):

This morning, I turned on my own personal computer and logged into a 3D online universe on an international network of computers, where I chatted to people and played games. I pressed a button on the keyboard, and it recorded a full motion video of the experience, and once I’d finished another button sent it up to a place on the online network, which I’m now posting a reference to on my own personal publishing platform.

The future creeps up on you.
