Peter Crouch <pccrouch at bcs.org.uk> is organizing a UK celebration of 50
years of Fortran, about which I recently sent an announcement to the J3
list.  He is surprised that there is no news of a US celebration.  Is J3
interested to repeat the geezer geek reunion?

Paul McJones of the Software Conservation Committee at the Computer
History Museum in Mountain View, CA (cool address: 1401 Shoreline Blvd.)
was the originator of the announcement that I recently sent.

There might be a chance to collaborate with SCC/CHM if J3 were to have a
meeting in Mountain View or San Jose or Sunnyvale this year.  Hey Mike:
Since you're scheduled as acting host for the May meeting, do you want
to have it near home, or do you prefer Lost Wages?  If Mike wants it
near his home base, does anybody object to moving the May meeting to the
Bay Area?  Maybe we could have the geezer geek reunion at the Computer
History Museum?  They have some spacious meeting rooms.
