Don't know that one.

There was also "Community Memory" (Lee Felsenstein), which had a coin-op 
wood housed terminal, but the computer that it communicated with wasn't 

There were a LOT of tiny computer companies that got started in Berkeley, 
such as "Thinker Toys" (Morrow) and "Kentucky Fried Computers" 
(Northstar).  Once they started to grow, they moved out of Berkeley as
