True but i did say as we know it. My post still stands as there is no reference to the internet in the film "Don't Look Now".


I agree, there. But the internet, the underlying structure, as we know it now, was very much the same as it is now, only way, way smaller. That is the point I was making. A visionary might have conceived of sending an email or a Usenet post from Italy. Using the internet. He'd had to have been in Academia at the time, though.

I just dug out my copy of "Don't look now" and at 9:44 Donald Sutherland asks

"Do you want me to put something on the Internet?"

or at least that's what it sounds like. The subtitle file has it as

"Do you want me to add something?".

Another subtitle set has

"You want me to put something on the end of that?"

'end of that' could be interpreted as internet.

Only found a single other internet listing referencing this snippet and they were asking the same question as the previous poster. Incidentally I found the first reference to the internet in Hansard was in 1919, but apparently that was a typo. Non typo first reference appears to be 1990.

Well, not at the start, but following the "http:". Which is what that article's author Murad Ahmed should have written, instead of

directly infront of the “www” in every internet website address

Many web pages have URLs that don't have "www" after the "http://", and the web page containing the text of that article is one of them.

OK so I first watched the clip from 9 minutes in and it sounded like 'internet'. then played it from 8minutes in to get the context. Julie Christie is writing a letter to her child. She's telling DS what she's written. he gets up to close the door from the draught and then says to her 'do you want me to put something on the end of that?' to which she replies 'no, why don't you send him/her a card yourself'. Problem solved! context is everything ...

Strictly speaking, the http: part isn't the address, it's the protocol, or connection method. The address comes after that bit, so the original statement, as worded, is correct.

The colon on it's own would make a perfectly good separator, functionality-wise.
