I included this video, not to embarrass our former Vice President, but to address an issue that won't seem to go away. Yes he said it. Yes he apparently misspoke. In 1969 ARPANet had its first test by connecting four computers from the UCLA, the Stanford Research Institute, U Cal Santa Barbara, and the U of Utah. The first message was sent between UCLA and SRI. Leonard Kleinrock, who worked at UCLA, describes what happened when the message "login' was typed:
We set up a telephone connection between us and the guys at SRI
We typed the L and we asked on the phone,
Do you see the L?
Yes, we see the L, came the response.
We typed the O, and we asked, Do you see the O?
Yes, we see the O.
Then we typed the G, and the system crashed
