I wrote a long tome on this 17Oct1980 for internal distribution
... about having single monolithic resource versus having huge number of
smaller resources capable of efficiently rolling in/roll back. They sent
somebody from Armonk corporate hdqtrs to slap my hands. I had already
had my hands slapped that summer ... being blamed for online computer
conferencing on the internal network (larger than arpanet/internet from
just about the beinning until sometime mid-80s). Folklore is that when
the corporate executive committee was told about online computer
communication (and the internal network), 5of6 wanted to fire me.
