One of the first ever things I did on a computer was at comprehensive school on a Commodore Pet. It was a program called "Classmates" The lesson consisted of the class telling the program information about some of the pupils. It looked a lot like this and it actually could talk a little about the people in the class after a while.
Like it got to learn who was friends with who and what music everyone liked etc.
At the time I thought it was pretty nifty.
