Minitel 2.0 by zergkiller Minitel 2.0 by zergkiller
(Français) - Minitel 2.0

Le réseau Transpac qu'utilisait le minitel a été arrêté définitivement le 01/07/2012 à minuit après 30 ans de fonctionnement.
Mais le minitel définitivement mort ? Techniquement, oui, mais philosophiquement, avec le « cloud computing » et les terminaux bridés comme les tablettes et les smartphone, il est juste devenu tactile et sans-fil.

The Transpac network used by the minitel* have been shutdown for good on 07/01/2012 midnight (GMT +1:00) after being launched 30 years ago.
But, is minitel really dead ? Technicaly, yes, but philosophically, with cloud computing and jailed terminals like tablets and smartphones, it just have a touch-screen and become wireless.

*A telematic terminal popular in France during the 80' and most of the 90'. For more informations about the minitel, see the Minitel Research Lab.

Thank you for the Minitel Research Lab link, i loved the idea of Minitel service, i never used it, but it works like BBS services, i really miss the simplicity of the 90s BBS and internet.
