While I am no fan of how AT&T ran its business, and the diminution of Bell Labs is
a capital crime to humanity, it must be noted that AT&T was competing with MCI, who
was cooking the books. “How can they offer phone calls for $0.01/minute?” The answer:
they couldn’t, but did anyway.
BTW, there are still good people doing good work at Bell Labs. But it certainly isn’t
what it used to be.
