Quick question, who made the metal book in the page image and when? I'd like to learn more about it.

I think there should also be "Older Than PC" or "Older Than The Internet".

As far as I know, Older Than the NES would cover much of that, since The Internet started taking off as a public venue during the middle 1980s. The tropes here cover large groups, splitting such a poorly distinguished subgroup off isn't very effective.

So, what comes after Older Than The Nes? Older Than iPhone?

Maybe cellphones? We can finally address the insidious cost of ringtone piracy!

There's are lists of media technology adoption rates, like this graph that would probably be a good staring point.

Could also be Older Than MySpace since that was the one of the first popular social networks.

I removed these three from Older Than Television because they are beyond its cutoff date and do not originate in TV.

Older Than Radio and Older Than Television would benefit from specific cutoff years, because people did not stop inventing tropes during the vaguely-identified "1890s" and "1940s." I suggest changing the television cutoff to 1939 or 1945. The radio cutoff could be 1900 or 1914 or 1918.

Proposed alternate title: Older Than This Index

What about 'Older Than PC Games' and 'Older Than World Wide Web'? (Not to forget about 'Older Than iPhones', or maybe the time being only 'Older Than Mobile Phones In General With Their SMS Language' - for some future editions of this wiki).
