Also, you might want to wear a name tag that says “Jay Omega – Engineering Professor”. Just in case there’s a murder.

E-Gads the Well is still alive and (presumably) well, that takes me back a very very long way, it must be well over a quater of a century since I last suppped there…

The WELL, wow. I remember when Billy Idol hung out at the WELL and that kind of made BBS’s cool.

Who actually owns the it now? Google…

That’s a good question. The WELL is currently owned by Salon, but it’s members are negotiating its purchase: The WELL has actually continued to serve an active, though somewhat smaller, community of users. Inkwell.vue, the WELL forum where we’re having the discussion, is world-readable and has high traffic because we interview a lot of high-profile authors (like Bruce) there. Bruce didn’t mention it, but you can send comments or questions via a link in the footer.

Was great to meet you and see you this weekend, Bruce.
Just next time (if we’ve not scared you off) remember I can’t see that well, and pick the questioner, and I’ll get the mic there SOMEHOW!

Audio will be up this week I hope.
