Great tag line: Ada is ready when you are.  We've been tossing around
slogans for a while, and this is the best one yet.

Hi folks,

I just read the article about (by?) Joyce Tokar in the latest DDC-I Online
News.  It is available at

Naturally most of us know most of what Joyce has to say there.  However,
the article is well-written in terms that many "lay people" would be able
to understand.

It would be nice if someone would take that material, refine it somewhat
(i.e. revise it from being an "interview" to straight prose), augment it
some, and try to get it into magazines like ESP, EDN, EE Times, etc.,
etc.  Maybe even CACM?

Ian Sommerville, and his colleagues, in particular, should read the DDC-I
