Terminal Oriented Social Science
<project> (TOSS) The Cambridge Project Project MAC was an ARPA-funded
political science computing project. They worked on topics like survey analysis
and simulation, led by Ithiel de Sola Pool, J.C.R. Licklider and Douwe B.
Yntema. Yntema had done a system on the MIT Lincoln Labs TX-2 called the Lincoln
Reckoner, and in the summer of 1969 led a Cambridge Project team in the
construction of an experiment called TOSS. TOSS was like Logo, with matrix
operators. A major feature was multiple levels of undo, back to the level of the
login session. This feature was cheap on the Lincoln Reckoner, but absurdly
expensive on Multics.
