Sorry for the delayed response, life has been hectic! I love the idea of
showing the Jot and SWYFT! I'm going over to Ted Nelson's tomorrow for our
weekly chat. He is willing to do a talk at VCF this year and he's asking
what subject he should do. I'd love to get your opinion on that.
Please let me know your thoughts, thanks!

As well, your PC Transporter woul;d go great with the IBM theme this year!
