And, oh yeah, email - the first intra-computer email program was on CTSS -
don't know if that was DARPA-funded ("An Experimental Time-Sharing System",
by Corbato, Daggett, and Daley, from the 1962 SJCC doesn't mention who their
funders were), but the first inter-computer email was done by BBN as part of
the ARPAnet work.
