Barry, Murray Turoff and Roxanne Hiltz did a series of books in the
late 1970s and early 1980s on The Network Nation and On-Line
Communities. This work was funded by NSF. There were 9 "experimental
trials on electronic information exchange for small research
communities." I was the moderator for the group on general systems
theory. Most of the participants had previously had a connection with
BCL. For awhile there was an Electronic Networking Association headed
by "Lisa Kimball" <[log in to unmask]>, and "Susanna Opper"
<[log in to unmask]>. They were at the forefront in the 1980s.
People were manually passing email messages from one email system to
another by downloading from one email system to a PC and then
uploading to another email system. When the internet arrived,
everyone finally began using email. Lisa and Susanna have made
careers acting as on-line facilitators improving organizational
