  1. I just finished watching the 90's Tech episode and Cisco was not mentioned at all. Does anyone know what happened and why Cisco was not featured?Cisco Note: Dave Evans of our IBSG group was featured for several different soundbites about 90's Internet technology and some of our equipment was featured as well.
