Plain text question –

A was designed by Tom Knight at MIT. One of the most influential devices of its kind, it had seven Bs. Bs, though they seem to have something to do with carbon molecules, were actually named after Swiss computer scientist C. A few of the Bs from A live on today.

Just fill in A, B and C to get one point.
