Subject: Internet node #1 at UCLA

UCLA hosted node #1 of the Internet, then begun as the Arpanet.  The actual
message
switching box for IMP #1 still resides in the Graduate Student Archives, on
the 3rd
floor of Boelter Hall.  One wag has suggested that this was typical of the
poor way the
department keeps old  equipment around.

I wish I had a better page to point at concerning the history of the
Internet at UCLA.
Dr. Leonard Kleinrock's faculty page is at:

Did lessons learned on SAGE transfer to SABRE and the on-line banking
apps.?

Larry Press

[Note from moderator: I heard that a VP from IBM was on an American
Airlines flight and happened to sit next to a senior person at American
Airlines.  The IBM person was working on SAGE and out of this conversation
talks were initiated on creating SABRE -- the automated reservation system
for American Airlines.  Anyone have more details on this connection?]
