Thar she blows! PR sounding

[From: Bruce Nevin (Tue 920811 08:03:14)]

There is potential here for some broader exposure. An angle that would
do very well with this audience is the "staid conservatives ignore
revolutionary alternative because it contradicts their expectations"
story. Something like this (but with less basis) played very well in
Scientific American recently regarding language history and linguistic
reconstruction.

  I don't know, mate. We're only rigged for cod . . .
  But think of what he'd fetch if we succeed!
  Yep. Might stove us in too.

I just signed onto this list and wanted to introduce myself. I'm associate
editor at Discover magazine. The subjects covered here are exactly the things
we love covering, so I'll be glad to hear from people. I may want to send a
note in the future to find people involved in a particular cybernetics branch,
but I'll try not to be too obnoxious. If anyone wants to reach me, they can
get me directly at MCI Mail (ID: 539-9004).

Bruce Nevin (Tue 920811 08:03:14) let us know that an associate editor for
_Discover_ magazine, Carl Zimmer, has joined the CYBSYS-L group and is
interested in cybernetics topics.

I would be happy to zap him with a bunch of CSG-PCT stuff. But I will have
to wait until MCI Mail gets its Internet gateway working again. Any
reservations out there?

And CSGnet, CSG, and PCT is NOT just rigged for cod (apologies to Bill
Silvert in Nova Scotia)--I think we are able to and willing to take on the
whole enchilada (as Rick Marken in LA would say).--Gary
