First Interspecies Internet Chat

Eleven years ago today, Koko the gorilla used American Sign Language to communicate with her fans via AOL chat. It was the first known interspecies chat on the internet.
Roughly 8,000 AOL subscribers joined the chat, which featured Koko, who signed her answers; Patterson, who interpreted them; and an AOL chat facilitator.

As the transcript clearly shows, Koko’s responses were a bit vague, but no more inane than some of the drivel littering Facebook pages these days.

Well... The apes in George of the jungle" have more intelligent conversation...

That, or Koko has such high inteligence that most AOL-chatters never fathomed the deepness of these answers...!

Pink!

Great- Gauldar Thnx!
