spring of 1974 I designed the Instant Community experience which I
had the occasion to undertake later in summer of the
same year in Plaja d'Aro.
object of that experiment was to help people in holidays to find
other persons with the same interest.
Data about more than
34.000 persons were gathered by distributing and collecting questionnaires
every morning in the beach.
As far as in 1974 we
had not computing facilities, the treatment of that information was
done manually by a team of 25 persons.
A large number of
affinity groups were formed.
