    The program, SHRDLU took it’s name from the linotype world where keyboards were laid out strictly on English natural language character frequencies in descending order.

    Linotype Keyboard layout and SHRDLU program for understanding natural language.
    The first two columns of keys are: e, t, a, o, i, n; and s, h, r, d, l, u. A Linotype operator would often deal with a typing error by running the fingers down these two rows, thus filling out the line with the nonsense words etaoin shrdlu. This is known as a run down


  4. SHRDLU from linotype machine

    SHRDLU was an early natural language understanding computer program, developed by Terry Winograd at MIT from 1968-1970.
    The name SHRDLU was derived from ETAOIN SHRDLU, the arrangement of the alpha keys on a Linotype machine


  5. I am guessing it the SHRDLU program of MIT by Terry WinoGuard. The first picture is the keyboard which helps feed in the command more effectively I suppose.
