Of course there was a dark side to this brave new tech world in the form of hackers, online predators and the proliferation of pornography. The world didn't crash in Y2K but the dot-com bubble did burst, and the world would never be the same.

This series examines milestones from the 1990s, including the rise of the internet and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
