Description

Pioneers of the Timesharing and Remote Processing Services industries in the 1960s and 1970s discuss why it disappeared and what replaced it. They talk about the changes in technology, the evolution of business models, and the change in customers. They discuss the legacy of timesharing and its influence on email, e-commerce, networking, and now the ubiquitous individual access to computing services and data.
