You obviously weren't around then, were you?

The tough part was finding shell accounts you could get. The Well was
one of the first. I know that's what I had an account on in '85. And
Apple most certainly was exchanging email. The original 'apple vax'
( later) was a 780 that lived in the top floor of Mariani 1.
I got my first job at Apple from a posting on that came through
that machine.
