Happy Birthday Doug!
It was an honor meeting you at your book signing at UC Berkeley in November. I hope that was just the beginning of an ongoing dialog. I have been doing what I can to pass your vision along to a younger generation. I'll again invite you to come by noisebridge.net and help broaden the scope of the young creators and help them understand the basis and purpose you foresaw. Too many people today use and even create new technologies without being connected to the context for which it was envisioned by people like you and Vannevar Bush and Alan Kay, and it is my hope that we can continue to educate future generations and help promote a culture of collaboration and interconnected communities beyond those which the technology facilitates.
Thank you so much for you contributions!
