Marshall, PMFJI.

I'm getting a distinct sense of deja vu out of this exchange between you and Dawn. A search through google groups doesn't find exactly what I think I've seen. There is a sense in which you've been promoting content based addressing, and Dawn has been promoting graph data structures for as long as each of you have been writing in c.d.t. But I can't find the exact exchange I'm trying to recall.

Maybe it was last year at Marienbad. Received on Sat Feb 17 2007 - 14:57:14 CST
