Incompatible Timesharing System - History, Development, Restoration
The Incompatible Timesharing System is a unique operating system created by "hackers" (in the original sense) at MIT's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The programmers were allowed to design the system any way they liked, and the result was an open system without any kind of security like passwords or file permissions. Many important applications were developed on ITS: Lisp, Logo, Scheme, Emacs, and Zork, to only mention a few.
The presentation will explain the origin and development of ITS, and how the operating system is being restored to its original glory.
Lars was born and raised in FOSS-north heartland on the west coast of Sweden. He learned programming as a kid during a golden age when there wasn't much else to do with a home computer. Besides having too many side projects, he has contributed code to GNU, Linux, PuTTY, and GitHub.
