An aside : INTEL is watching the Maine project very intently.  I
understand they've donated PC laptops to several parochial schools.  I
wonder which would survive the durability test, iBook or PC?  I wonder
what applications they've got loaded on those computers?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the publication of the conference

Well, I got started on this path by meeting Seymour in 1968 and many 
of my first insights into this area came from Seymour. We've been 
colleagues and friends now for more than 30 years.
