Although I suppose what is meant by moving data and how advanced the "computer", I'm sure it took place in a laboratory 'first", but the publicized events of the 'first' were usually what made the history books (i.e. why publicize moving data 6 feet, when 100 miles sounds more impressive). I will cetainly follow this thread.
Thinking aloud: unrelated to Ethernet, what really was the (ahem) "first" example of data moving between computers across a wire?
wasn't it the FieldData by RCA,
as least they tried to demonstrate networking various systems in the battlefield
