Besides the considerable technical contributions of Doug's project at 
SRI, theirs was a group that did much to create the open and 
collaborative tone of the Internet that we've come to consider as 
automatic and natural, but were unusual in those days.

As a junior staffer responsible for documentation at the UCLA Arpanet 
project, I used the SRI-ARC NLS system tools over the net.  Partly for 
the capabilities, but partly because it was always a cool group to 
interact with.
