I made some inquiries in 1998, and found the people I contacted were emphatically *NOT* interested in using the Internet. It is hard to emphasis how much they were not interested. I started developing a protocol for using the Internet to deliver emergency alerts to people who were using their computer, but weren't watching the television or listening to the radio. http://dranet.dra.com/nerf.html Instead, every conversation seemed to turn into an inquisition about how I knew what I knew about the existing system. That was about the time I stopped working on it. The government people got too weird for me.
