An absent friend
Wiep de Vos
Died 1996. She lent me money when I most needed it.
She also introduced me to the writer
Doris Lessing. Lessing's books
were very helpful when I first went to live in Asia.
Geek aka Erik van Riper was my first guide in cyberspace. Although
I never met him in NEW YORK, he was the first person to answer questions
about the internet when I was in my office at Queen's University Belfast.
At that time I was just using telnet on a VAX connected to a PC via
a PAD line to find out about everything. One may ask why I did not ask
the sysadmins at Q.U.B. for help. The answer is very simple really: Geek
is a Go Player, and the local sysadmins had never heard of the game.
Dope helps you more in times of No Money than Money in times of no Dope
