Harry in Your Pocket 1973 movie
The old school grifter pick pockets discuss the art of the game and where money is headed, and complains how the game is getting harder because people don’t carry the same amount of cash around anymore.
James Coburn’s character explains that cash will go away because
– It is inevitable –
that credit cards and computers have made everything electronic.
The old school Grifter objects! because Communism . . . .
Nobody was thinking of Bitcoin in 1973. The Future is Now.

Back in the 1970s, David Newbury’s dad, Paul, worked at Carnegie Mellon, one of the leading computer science schools in the country. This was in the very early years of the Internet, back when it was the secret and very small ARPANET, which had started in the late ’60s, with just four locations. By 1973, it had expanded to a small handful of government labs, research universities, and private companies—but still so few that the entire network could be mapped on a single sheet of paper.
Recently, Newbury found that map among his dad’s papers and posted it online. You can find Stanford, UCLA, Utah and UCSB, the original members, but by 1973, ARPANET had expanded east, to Case Western, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, and MIT. There are government labs, like Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the Army’s Aberdeen Ballistic Research Lab, and private research organizations like MITRE and Xerox. <snip>
