                               will speak on
                The Blit: Merging bit-map graphics and UNIX


                                 ABSTRACT



The Blit terminal, developed at Bell Labs by Bart  Locanthi  and  Rob  Pike
aims at the middle ground between time-sharing and personal computing, pro-
viding the advantages of high-speed interactive graphics in the UNIX  time-
sharing system. The terminal is inexpensive and simple enough to take home,
designed with software in mind by people who planned to write the  software
and use the terminal. Two improvements introduced to UNIX by the Blit are:

          - interactive graphics for any user, and
          - convienient multiprogramming

This talk will focus on issues of software design and user interfaces.
