Noll, A. Michael 2016. AT&T vs. Bell Labs. [unknown address]:A. Michael Noll

The article is another of a series of notes A. Michael Noll wrote in the years since 2014 in an attempt to draw attention to documents and factual processes at the Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ. Besides their enormous innovations in computing and information technology, Bell Labs then was a place for ideas about future uses of computing equipment in culture and art. Artists and researchers were, of course, interested in having their work published in whatever form seemed suitable for the purpose. However, AT&T management was not necessarily supportive of such activities. Noll here writes about such a controversy. (AT&T, the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, in the 1960s owned Bell Labs and thus had an interest in controlling activities there.)
