Quite interesting, indeed.

I like how they call it "internet" and not "the internet"(in the video). People always get that sort of thing ass-backwards, like "Family Guy", every moron calls it "The Family Guy"
GET IT STRAIGHT!!!
Remember 1993 was in the early, early days of Mosaic. It barely worked and most people who were on the internet were still using gopher, ftp and IRC to get their info. Netscape version 1.0 didn't come out till that later part of 94 and betas were floating around in the early part of the year. IE wasn't even in alpha stage. Microsoft was even in denial as it didn't know about it at least beyond a medium for academics and the uber geek crowd.
Given the time, I think the piece was well done considering it made national news even before the web was a reality.
and if you were on the net you were probably using shell access on a UNIX mainframe at a university via telnet. If you were lucky enough to have email your client was PINE and it certainly wasn't Outlook Express!

My brother had our family commodore 64 on the net in 1984. No one had a clue wtf he was doing, but i do remember dad yelling about phone bills...
