CS Royalty?

CS-Royalty? So I was eating lunch in Williamsburg and struck up a conversation with a guy who was about 65 or so, and he claimed the following. - He was one of 7 developers to port DARPAnet to commercial architectures - He had worked with almost every president since starting up work - He has been in a Fortune 500 company as an IT higher-up and had met with Bill Gates (and told him "his product sucked") - He went to University of Colorado and taught at MIT His name came out something like Larry Sand-berg, but very uncertain about the last name. I'm interested in seeing if this is complete BS, or some element of truth.
