Well, isn't that what friends are for?

Have You Seen Any of these People?
These are friends of mine with whom I've lost contact. I am hoping that the
Internet will enable me to find them again.
If anybody knows the postal or e-mail address of any of these people,
or if you are one of these people, please contact me at
- William Dalton

and then moved to Silicon Valley. He is probably somewhere in
the California Bay Area.

- Joe Belef

- I found his university home page (which includes a nice picture)
using Google. Unsurprisingly he's become a professor, which though

- I found Dave via Google. After all these years he is still in
Seattle and is now working for Seattle's Department of Neighborhoods.
- Patricia Goodson
- An aquaintance of a friend Patricia's was searching for Patricia on
the web and was directed to this page, which resulted in my request for
information on Patricia to be forwarded to a third party and eventually
to Patricia herself. She then contacted me. Patricia is still in Prague
in the Czech Republic.
This wins the prize for the most complex chain of events
that led to a contact with a long lost friend.
- I found his HP2100 page and sent an
e-mail. He replied.
- I found his home page, including his
picture. He hadn't changed a bit! We met in again in 2000 in Paris.
- He saw my home page and sent me an e-mail.
He's now a professor of creativity. What a great job that must
Thanks to the lost friends who took the trouble
to get in contact again and also to all of those people who helped.
