Kleinrock was also interviewed on CBC Radio yesterday, telling the story of the
Stanford and UCLA machines being connected and the crash after l-o-g was typed in.

He was being touted as the "Father of the Internet" by the interviewer. I have
no wish to detract from Kleinrock's contributions and I haven't looked in depth
into who did exactly what, but putting these monikers on a solitary person is
usually putting one's foot in it.

I just wish these reports would acknowledge that computer networking began over
a decade before this (SAGE,SABRE,etc).
