Oh wow, at 1h 44min an audience member said that he would do a keyboard mush to see if the system still functioned, and he did try that on a Lisa at the West Coast Computer Fair(e?) when there was a demo, and they tried it on a (Fortune?) machine and it crashed, and they snuck away, they didn't mean to try it on a Lisa, *but* in reaching for a brochure, they accidentally touched the upper right of the keyboard and crashed it, now that Lisa was networked and it not only brought that specific Lisa, but the entire network, so they had to power cycle the whole system.

Nice anecdote, but this means that the AppleNet stuff was actually worked (well, unless this was on MacWorks w/AppleTalk, but I doubt that.)
