The ARPANET Dialogues Vol.III
The third installment of the ongoing online archive project  The ARPANET Dialogues is now online.

About the ARPANET Dialogues:

In the period between 1975 and 1979, the Agency convened a rare series of conversations between an eccentric cast of characters representing a wide range of perspectives within the contemporary social, political and cultural milieu. The ARPANET Dialogues is a serial document which archives these conversations. Even more unusual perhaps was the specific circumstances of the conversation: taking advantage of recent developments in telecommunications technology, the conversation was conducted via an instant messaging application networked by computers plugged into ARPANET, the United States Department of Defenseâs experimental computer network. All participants in the conversation were given special access to terminals connected to ARPANET, many of them located in US military installations or DOD-sponsored research institutions around the world. Excerpts from each session will be published as they become available. The ARPANET Dialogues is an ongoing research project by Bassam El Baroni, Jeremy Beaudry and Nav Haq.
