That's irrelevant to the question though. There were around two people on the arpanet then. It wasn't something that affected your average household or the nation's view of or ability to talk about Nixon. I got my first access to the internet in 1990 and nobody had heard of it then. It wasn't until 1994 or 1995 that it became common knowledge.

Also, mosaic was created in 1992 as I recall.
