>> Silicon Valley is full of stories. Some pretty, some not. This is one of those stories. Bruce Damer, curator of the digibar shows the gigantic storage devices used by the Xerox alto to store data for mountain trolls.

>> Keychain drive.
>> That's right, keychain drive. You can take it anywhere on the net. The altos are running in the basement of the Whitehouse, they're running at CMU, they're running at Clark, all through Arpanet; you can play Maze war, a 3D first person shooter on this, across the Arpanet and you push this in there and it was your entire environment.
>> It's a USB drive, 1975.
