A description of JOSS (Johnniac Open Shop System), an on-line, time-shared use of the RAND Johnniac computer, providing computational service at a number of remote electric typewriter consoles. As many as eight users at once may communicate with JOSS by means of a smooth language, specifically designed for on-line problem solving. JOSS handles many formula evaluation problems, providing the facility of a printing desk calculator as well as the capabilities of a stored-program computer. It also provides various arithmetic and trigonometric functions and allows flexible output in user-specified formats. A console consists of a standard IBM 868 typewriter with a slightly modified character set and a small box with a few indicator lights and activating switches. It uses continuous-feed, sprocket-guide, single-ply paper in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets. The user's input of instructions and data is typed in green , and JOSS responses in black. This memorandum contains the narration accompanying the filmed demonstration.
