1. The Arpanet history has been described in many places— in contemporary technical papers and in popular and historical accounts of the Internet's history. Two easily accessible books describing Arpanet's history are by J. Abbate, Inventing the Internet, MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass., 1999, and K. Hafner and M. Lyon, Where Wizards Stay Up Late, Simon & Schuster, New York, 1996.
2. Norsk Data was the Norwegian computer company, started in 1967 and growing into a legendary Norwegian success story by the mid 1980s. (See P. O. Heradstveit, Eventyret Norsk Data, J.M. Steenersens Forlag A/S, Oslo, Norway, 1985.) Unfortunately, by the late 1980s, ND's minicomputer with ND proprietary operating system products began to suffer significantly from competition from PCs with the Windows, Macintosh, or Unix/Linux operating systems; this business problem was exacerbated by the 1987 stock market decline (black Monday) and what followed.
3. Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN), which developed the IMP packet-switch under contract to ARPA was located in Cambridge a few miles from MIT.
