When and where's it going to be?

-- Anon (, January 28, 1999.

Ed will be there? Are you sure? Tell us the times, places, and hours. If it is tomorrow, Friday, we'll go. It'd be fun to see Mac, RC, Martin, Linda, etc there! Go Cascadians!

Curoiuser and curiouser...

I'd seen the entry on Ed's Calendar (see Yourdon Home Page) a few weeks back. He's scheduled to speak at a "Year 2000 Expo" in Seattle, January 30-31 (as in "this weekend").

When I just now tried to review the info, the link doesn't work. No reference for "", it seems. Odd. It worked not that long ago.

Anyhow, that's all I know. And unfortunately, I'm a transplanted Cascadian/Northwesterner/Webfoot/Mossback now living in oh-so-sunny-SoCal and am in no position to jet up to the Emerald City at present. Do hope that someone is able to drop in on this, say hi to Ed, and give us all a report.

We are Cascadians too! We are talking about going on one of the days. I bet the place will be jammed! Heard Jim Lord interviewed on a local radio show today. (He has the Westergaard site) He will also be speaking at the Expo.

-- Suzanne L (SuzanneL@Familybusiness@webtv.not), January 28, 1999.

Hi Suzanne L! Another Cascadian oozing out of the mosswork! Welcome and please do come seek us out on Saturday. Looked at roster of speakers and it looks like a busy schedule. Very curious, have no idea of what to expect. Will try to soak it all up. :)
