Hi Jon,

Thanks! I wish I had cable so I could check out MSNBC. Do they cite
it in their online listings somewhere? Do I get a "Featured on
MSNBC" logo for my web page? I guess I should upload the digital
version of me singing...

SCaN is definitely being resurrected by Tim Byars
( and should be making a big splash soon (right,
Tim?). I did a demo for the Mac-LA Dev Sig, and I've been signed up
for the May MacFest, whatever that is. I'm still doing that under the
"nugi" logo, instead of SCaN; we'll have to see how all that shakes
out. I'm considering reviving 'nugi', at least until Rhapsody gets
its own brand name so we can rename it.

Subject: macarenext on MSNBC's The Site


I sent in the Macarenext to that computer show on MSNBC "The Site"
and it was mentioned on the show last nite. The computer generated
character DEV attemmpted to sing it but didn't do a very good job.
They tend to re-run things for about a week so you might still be able
to catch it.

They showed your URL so the meme might spread some more.

What ever happened to SCAN it seemed to die after we elected (Show me
the money!!!) Tim Byars as president? I noticed recently that you
were giving some NeXTSTEP demos to some of the Mac groups. Do you
think we should resurrect SCAN given the new life in the platform?
