If you are asking if there have been this much attention paid to the UFO / alien issue prior to the year 2000, then the answer is a resounding yes.
However, I think with the increase in wired households and greater access to the internet, boards like ATS have really taken off in the past
half-decade, creating a brand new medium for the real-time dissemination of information -- people now can report a sighting on NUFORC as it's
, and then post the pictures here immediately afterwards...
And since everyone and their freaking iguana now owns at least one digital camera, the cycle time from seeing something, taking a picture, reporting
the sighting and sharing your picture with the world has been reduced to approx. 3 minutes. Fanf%@kingtastic, if you ask me..
