Pacific Software, Berkeley, CA
Pacific Software was the for-profit marketing company created by the progressive computer collective project called the Community Memory Project (CM). In the pre-net, post '60s era, Community Memory's theoreticians designed a system of public computer terminals in which anyone could put any message, comment, news, poetry, etc. and anyone could answer it and so on, in public places. CM anticipated the popularity of Internet participation by nearly two decades. Their own system has been installed and maintained in Santa Monica, California, Berkeley, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, to name a few places.
