Philip K. Dick defines the internet in 1970

A Scanner Darkly, by Philip K. Dick

"-- works out, the phone book has only one number in it; you call that number for whoever you want. Listed on page after page ... I'm talking about a totally burned-out society. And in your wallet you have that number, the number, scribbled down on different slips and cards, for different people. And if you forget the number, you couldn't call anybody."

"You could dial Information."

"It's the same number."
