There is a nice article on Growklaw which describes the very early days
of Unix. Denice Richie, Ken Thompson, etc.


One thing caught by eye; about 1/2 way through there is a listing of the
original 20 or so nodes of the internet and guess who is there?

The  U of Manitoba! (along with 3 other Canadian universities).

A fascinating read for anyone interested in the birth of the modern
Internet and Unix.
