Understanding and finding out about the world is so easy in these days of the internet, when information about anything we want, and from anywhere we want, is literally at our fingertips.

So, cast your mind back over 40 years, when "computers" belonged mostly on television programs about the latest achievements in technology or some work of science fiction which was predicting (generally quite inaccurately) how people would live in the future, and television itself was limited to a very small number of channels for several hours a day.

Our horizons were much narrower in those days, and the technology was much more limited. However, even in those days, there was a very basic form of technology, based on a decidedly low-tech form of communication that literally presented the world to you at your fingertips.
