As others have indicated, I think not.  ;-)

I recently watched the following videos of Bob Metcalfe:

  - Link - Ethernet Briefings in April 1978 by Bob Metcalfe (112 minutes)
     - https://youtu.be/Fj7r3vYAjGY

And the follow up:

  - Link - Metcalfe's Law After 40 Years of Ethernet (19 minutes)
     - https://youtu.be/f6CJA421aUo

The Ethernet Briefings video goes into fairly good detail comparing and 
contrasting ALOHA net and Ethernet.
