Somewhat related to Craig's effort ... I'm continuing work on a paper  
which covers the evolution of inter-terminal messaging (now popularly  
known as "instant messaging"); several of the sources are here on the  
list.   It should be complete in a few months; if you're interested  
let me know and I'll send you a copy when ready.

This is a continuation of work from Ed Lazowska's terrific History of  
Computing graduate class here at the University of Washington (joint  
with Steve Maurer at Berkeley and Geoff Voelker at UCSD).  You might  
be interested in some of the lectures available for viewing:
