At the time, ARPA was funding three separate computer research
projects and using three separate computer terminals to
communicate with them. Mr. Taylor said, No, we need a single
computer research network, to connect each project with the
others, to enable each to communicate with the others.  “I
went to see Charlie Herzfeld, who was the head of ARPA, and
laid the idea on him,” Mr. Taylor recalled in an interview for
this obituary. “He liked the idea immediately, and he took a
million dollars out of the ballistic missile defense budget
and put it into my budget right then and there.” He added,
“The first funding came that month.”  His idea led to the
Arpanet, the forerunner of the internet.

Mary Shaw ~ NYT gets it wrong about PARC’s weekly “Dealer” meetings.  It was called
“Dealer” because speakers were selected at random from the lab (there might
have been a deck of cards with names).  Everyone was expected to be able to
lead a stimulating discussion — about something.
