With our very own Gene Spafford. This one was bizarre but actually very amusing, they did this re-enactment of the virus breaking into computers played by various computer-troid voices, a particularly evil one for the virus itself. Oh, it was technically "ok" and had its flaws but the more I think about it the more I liked it, it actually did give the basics. (from memory, very roughly): Hello...Berkeley? Yes, Berkeley Computer, Login please. Oh, I don't want to login, I just want to give you some mail. Proceed with mail DEBUG! Transfer this program and run it in your memory (MOO-HA-HA!) You said DEBUG, I must do whatever you tell me...transferred. You get the idea. If *ANYONE* has a tape of this broadcast I'd love a copy, it should get a session at USENIX, I'm sure it would have the crowd rolling in the aisles (perhaps just before the special spot where the NSA announces from the podium that it's illegal to run Unix...) And Gene, well done (his was a serious interview covering the basics.) -Barry Shein
