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.
