From the early 1970s, developers at Bolt Beranek and Newman continued BBN's record for innovative breakthroughs in networked systems. In this article the author review highlights of BBN's history in the area of distributed computing from several different perspectives: early investigations into how to make use of and program the emerging interhost communication capability, distributed systems infrastructure (middleware), and network-centric applications that utilized the emerging distributed systems capabilities in new and innovative ways.
