If I ever complete the 1967-87 years, which is possible but not too likely, I will then undertake a full index. To look back from that cusp to a younger and happier time, when anything seemed possible and the world of computing was just opening out, is a great privilege, and a very great pleasure. I worked in Monaco and Switzerland and the Netherlands when I was too controversial to be employable in the U.

Then I was awarded a National Science Foundation grant.It was to me as an individual investigator (unusual), and it permitted me to move from New Mexico to Washington, where I had the resources of the Library of Congress and of the Smithsonian within walking distance.Page numbers appear inline, representing the beginning of the corresponding printed page, as to press.I wanted to go on; I had toured Europe in the early Sixties, and had other stories from those days that historians and veterans would want to hear.Providing this edition on CD/ROM, uncoded and uncompressed, means that chapters or sections of the book can be downloaded and subjected to full-text search. Later, for three amusing years, I was the top Federal computer honcho, and escaped to be editor of the major trade newspaper.This is a poor substitute for a careful index, and I apologize.
