there's something kind of "full circle" about
this (joseph jaquard's loom machine figures
in the history of computing machines, and
here it comes again). Even if no one in sf-lug
wants to pay the $175 early-registration fee,
it seems interesting to know this fabric
software convention will be in SF at Moscone.
