Big Rick,

Your IBM funded-man Tony Stanco has the tape.  You should ask him for a
copy.  By the way, I see quite of bit of IBM money moving around Washington
these (ie. Ed Black, Bruce Schneir et al.)  Let them know that I have no
problem AdTI would be happy to accept far less money than those guys are
getting to support our research.

Hello again, Mr. Brown!  How are things at the Alexis de Tocqueville
Institute?  (You've moved from Erols to Verizon, I see.)  We haven't
heard much from you since I explained to the mailing list a year ago
which Microsoft-supported institute you're vice-president of.[1]

Anyone else who was at the O'Reilly conference:  What did Bruce _really_
say, in context?
