This is great! Welcome UnRev-III (?) !
I appreciate my name being mentioned in association with the UnRev-II colloquium, but I was just
one among many who got that program out.
To set the record straight, the UnRev-II Engelbart Colloquium at Stanford was actually put together
by Doug with the support of more than 50 volunteers and 30 guest speakers. See
http://www.bootstrap.org/alliance/dkr/people.htm & http://www.bootstrap.org/colloquium/credits.html
to appreciate who and what was involved.
However, if particular names should be mentioned, I think the following must be--
Mary Dye, Christina Engelbart, Jeff Rulifson & Pat Rush -- for coming up with the idea in the
Pierluigi Zappacosta -- who donated his own money and twisted the arms of his friends to get us
all the funding to do it,
Marcelo Hoffmann -- who worked out the entire program content with Doug (because if I were the
producer, then Marcelo would have been the director of the act),
Paul Marca & Julia Harms and folks at Stanford SCPD -- who defied all obstacles to mount this
program at Stanford (and, of course, they *were* the real producers, not me), and
Mary Coppernoll, Shinya Yamada, Frode Hegland and later Henry van Eyken -- who took care of the
administration, the technology infrastructure and the colloquium website.
Thank you, Doug, for the inspiration.
Keep going, BA-CPC!
