This comment reminded me of an internal talk I attended at Bell
Labs. It had the single most powerful slide I've ever seen in a
talk. It was a talk about internal networking, and the slide looked
like your standard network diagram -- lots of circles with lots of
lines connecting them. The computation centers were networked.
UUCP was on there, and datakit.
But dead in the middle of the slide was a circle that had absolutely
no connections with anything. Of course, somebody asked about, and
was told "Oh. That's the networking department..."
As I recall, said department ceased to exist about a month later...

AT&T seemed pretty clueless about networking.
