I think that mutated into ANM [advanced network management]. Bruce Laird
took it over and I was project lead. We were starting with the Lisp code that Jil's
group had done and were porting/reinventing it as a distributed program for
Sun workstations. We actually got it working and I heard, after I had retired
and headed farm-wad, that it was actually in use in the CSNET.
I forget who was working on it. For sure David Waitzman and Doug Gallagher.
Bruce Laird or David will likely remember more about this than I do. Is either on
