To: lou@berkeley

Lou,
	Following is the tentative schedule for the Boston Conference.
It is still undergoing some flux, so this version shouldn't be taken as
gospel, but it is a fairly close guide to what will be presented.  I have
mailed letters to all authors, including this schedule (actually, this morning's
version which was slightly different), as well as discussing use of slides in
preference to overhead projections, and preparation of papers for the
proceedings.

	Feel free to forward this version of the schedule around the community
for posting on bulletin boards, and such.
	Alan

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
