PLATO history article in Ars Technica

Recommended Posts

@tschak909 - If you haven’t seen this yet, I thought you might be interested in it (even though I’m sure you know PLATO’s history better than the Ars Technica writer). There’s even a shoutout to irata.online and Fujinet there. 

Ars Technica article on PLATO system


I could only skim the article since I’m at work. It’s nice to see some reference to our retro world in more mainstream tech websites.

A new Ars Technica article dropped today. It specifically mentions connecting to and using IRATA.ONLINE.  It mentions #FujiNet, but they connect with a C64 and PTerm.
