Guy who leaked The Today Show “what is internet” video gets fired

Remember that neat clip that popped up a couple weeks ago from “The Today Show” in 1994? If not, it’s right here. The video shows Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel openly wondering what the internet is. It’s not embarrassing, it was 1994!

Well, apparently the guy at NBC who discovered that clip and leaked it on – ironically – the internet has been fired. Rob Pegoraro of the Washington Post tweeted about it a couple of days ago.

Yes, the guy may have broken a rule about releasing certain things, but it was important. It went viral for a reason and it wasn’t because Gumbel or Couric looked stupid. It was truly neat to remember how people were talking about the internet just as it was starting to blow up.
