So we can start discussing Edison because of electricity, Parkes because 
of plastic and Lilienfeld for the transistor? If you want that then I 
suggest starting a list called KCUG so you can discuss anything to do 
with computers.

There has to be a line somewhere and it has to be just behind Linus 
Torvalds, Alan Cox and Richard Stallman or you might as well take the 
"Linux" out of the name of this mailing list.
