You know my opinion on a book dedicated ;-) 
I must finish the layout of the book by the way!

It may be a good idea to do this on a Wiki or on a dedicated web page. 
But who would decide who should appear on this Hall of Frame Newton? 
According to what criteria will they be eligible?

>> Something similar was done for Andy Hertzfeld’s Folklore.org <http://folklore.org/> site, which I believe ended up being a book called “revolution in the Valley” with some of the best stories. I would think in our case it would be more similar to “Defying Gravity”, a big coffee table book with photos and history.
>> I know Sylvain has expressed interest in the book aspect, but I think that it would have to begin as a wiki or other online website first in order to gather and edit the material. Does anyone think this would be a good idea, has anyone tried before?
