Bill Gausewitz's article, "California Auto Insurance: The Cutting Edge of 1988 Technology," was published in Information Week: Insurance & Technology on October 24, 2014.
From the article...
"Think back to the information technology available in 1988: No smartphones. No tablets. No texting. No social media. No WiFi. No wireless Internet access.
The Internet, for those who knew about and had access to it, was a text-based collection of random and largely unsearchable information. The few who used email probably had an AOL or CompuServe address. The best PC-based database program was dBase III; the best spreadsheet was Lotus 1-2-3. PC users were facing the question of whether or not Windows was here to stay."
