[ih] When the words Internet was design to survive a nuclear war appeared for the first time?

when did people start saying that or what was the reason they said that?

fwiw - I just gave a talk on the latter 


a video will be posted at some point on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/user/BerkmanCenter under 2018-2019 talks
