    Mike is a consultant I have been working with who is a Jazz/Funk bass player extraordinaire. He uses all these really cool mikeisms like cool-beans, bee’s-knee’s, groovey and lots more. So I apologize if I start sounding like a 1960′s jazz musician in some of my posts. I will only be working with mike for a few more weeks and it should ware off in a month or so.

    Here is his website:

    Cool Beans!

    I read this in the early nineties before the internet became a series of tubes. I would still credit it for getting me interested in the Internet before it arrived. Just a shame that I wasn’t in a position to start a business.

    As a war story from the childhood of computer networks you can’t beat it.

    Unfortunately, I was in a position to start a business (twice 1989 and 1994) and both times I was stupid enough to miss it. Oh well.

    Thanks for the update on the book.
