Doug Lenat is a year older. When I went to college in 1969, computers
were the rage, the new thing, and the brightest of the bright were drawn
to AI. Perhaps you can envision my pleasure to now attend Darpa project
meetings where I can converse with the authors of my treasured
textbooks and papers....

There are greater numbers with each subsequent generation, but the passion
is there also with us, just muted/dampened by the stunning realization of
how much work it takes to make an AI. It is an honor, a privilege to
work among giants.
