I still have my copy of Microsoft Multiplan for the TRS-80. ;)

(I can't see the video since it is "private")

Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston worked on Multics while they were still MIT students. Among other things they worked on developing LSS (Limited Services Subsystem) about which I remember very little. We often had some MIT students contributing to the development effort.

Wow, that's really strange. They took the video down. It was a TEDx talk, so I'm assuming it'll be back up shortly. I even went to the TED website, and it's pulling the same (absent) video from YouTube.

I'll try to update if it comes back.
