comment Why was '~' chosen to represent the home directory?
That's exactly what the "HERE IS" key is for; it would be useful when many terminals share a serial line to the computer. On the ADM-3A, it was an optional addon board for the RAM to store the identification in. Source: vt100.net/lsi/adm3a-om/adm3a-om.pdf
