[ih] question re. early adoption of email



> https://www.fidonet.org/inet92_Randy_Bush.txt

as isoc seems not to have archived early conference papers (i was
looking for one from paul tsuchia on sparse netmasks from '92 or '93) a
more formal cite may be Communications of the ACM Volume 36 Issue 8,
August 1993,
http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=163383&coll=portal&dl=GUIDE&CFID=48775420&CFTOKEN=85794362

i think the basic fodonet standard was about '85, but, speaking of poor
archiving, my copy only goes back to v9 in '87,

i am told most fidonet travels over tcp transport these years.  i have
had no fidonet links since the latter '90s, but do have both tcp- and
pots-based uucp.
