In 1973, four national laboratory groups and three university energy research groups started an investigation of whether scientific collaboration could be improved with computer networks. Four years later, the seven groups were piggybacked on to the Arpanet, and more than 60 case histories of applications had been documented. This article reviews the early collaboration and tells how the energy research community was introduced to modern computer networking
