These are some notes from an email to the curator:

I was reading through the "Maciunas' Learning Machines" book and I saw a picture of the Paul Baran "distributed" network diagram peeking out of a pile of papers in a photograph. I've been fascinated with this diagram for over a decade and I think it's an important artifact/idea. The text is a representation of the diagram. For example:

"01 < > 05" is "Node 01 connects to Node 05"

To generate the text, I gave each node in the diagram a number. The instructions aren't the precise diagram, but they are relevant network information about it.
