A flattering comparison, but sadly I have never in my life been
out to Catalina. I was actually in California at one point in 1983,
and seem to remember staying in a Holiday Inn on Pico Bvd in order
to visit an OSI implementer in Santa Monica and then a day trip up
to ACC in Santa Barbara to discuss FDDI stuff. It was a couple of years
later that we at CERN began to abandon the OSI dream and start seriously
with TCP/IP.

It occurs to me that I probably met Noel for the first time on that
same trip. We were wondering whether the future lay with FDDI or ProNet-80,
and I definitely visited Proteon. Unfortunately I don't seem to have a
copy of my 1983 trip report.
