Yes, face to face interaction is vital to all of us.  You can't get
it all from the net, as wonderful as it is.  I've known Karen
Schneider for a number of years virtually, through a wide
variety of library and non-library lists.  Our first meeting was
indeed at the PICS preconference, where I was surprised and
delighted when at a break a charming young lady came up to
me and threw her arms around me (well, they may not have
made it all the way around, but.....).  It was, of course, Karen.

As to the propeller beanie, here's the scoop.  It is not a
commercial.  I have no interest, financial or otherwise, in the

conference, of whatever type or location, since 1992.  I'll
continue that tradition, of course.  And I wore it at all times at

Anyway,  since I was asked over twenty times at ALA where I

Berkeley, CA  94703
1-800-BEANY-ME  (232-6963)

They are in the $15-$20 range in tourist shops in a number of
places (I've seen them in SF, Berkeley, New Orleans,
Sacramento, and a couple other towns).  I'm sure their 800
number folks would happily take an order as well.
