PLATO is the great, great, great granddaddy of the online computer network. Developing forums, email, multiplayer networked games, screen sharing, and instant messaging, it is responsible for many of the things we take for granted today.

The interview starts 19 minutes into the recording! Watch the YouTube version preferably!
