Yes, indeed. I suspect that like much else that was happening in those early AI 
days, nobody thought it worth recording in print because everyone already knew 
almost all the others personally. I know ideas used to spread rapidly months, 
or in some cases years, before they got officially 'published'. Every attempt I 
have read to reconstruct the early history of some AI idea has been woefully 
incomplete or partial.     (03)
