Thanks Jon. I recognize all those names except Sean O'Shaughnessey's. But
I wasn't really clear on how all the pieces fit together (no offence to all
you who are "pieces"). By the time I got here in 2005 NewtonTalk was just
there, if you know what I mean.
It might be interesting if a brief history of NewtonTalk could be put
together and stuck someplace handy. Do we merit a page in Wikipedia, or
somewhere a little less ambitious?
Just thinking aloud it's a Sunday evening here and my mind is freewheeling
in preparation for the new week.
