      Yeah forget the "first" aspect; I just mean what are the earliest examples that we march-ins know of?

      Thinking aloud: unrelated to Ethernet, what really was the (ahem) "first" example of data moving between computers across a wire?

        I've always thought that was a Bell Labs "first" from the 40s.  I have a Bell Labs book somewhere around here.  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.
