That was a great read... I recommend it to others, especially if you were

"On the 11th of January 1982 twenty-two computer scientists met to discuss
an issue with ‘computer mail’ (now known as email). Attendees included the
guy who would create Sun Microsystems, the guy who made Zork, the NTP guy,
and the guy who convinced the government to pay for Unix. The problem was
simple: there were 455 hosts on the ARPANET and the situation was getting
out of control....."
