      If it wasn't for the work done in this area through WWII, there would not have been a
      Silicon Valley.

      Buffer overflow :-(

      I have a deep resentment with the way Californians
      get publicity for anything
      and take credit for any technology.
      For example, CA celebrated the 50th anniv of the transistor
      despite it being invented in NJ!
      Where's the NJ publicity machine?

      With all the effort we put into the displays
      and the continuing effort to rotate exhibits,
      I'd like to see more effective press releases
      sharing our results.
      They're free, or is there some insertion fee
      for the PR newswire?
