Al Gore and Bill Gates Speak

04/09/96 RMIUG Meeting - Security Technology on the Internet


We wrote on April 1st:

The Tuesday, April 9 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) has two excellent speakers who are eminently qualified to talk to us about how the government and private sector view/use the Internet; this is a meeting not to be missed!

Al Gore (vice-president@whitehouse.gov) will discuss how government ...
Bill Gates (billg@microsoft.com) will present the private sector ...

P.S. The Secret Service has also informed us that there will be some special security requirements ... we will send out a follow-up message in a few days that will outline these.

Agent Peryl Feuhls from the White House has still not given us a clear-cut answer if NIST security is adequate for the Vice-President. In addition, Mr. Gates has said that he is a little short of cash right now (to pay half of the room rental fee) since he is saving up to buy AOL, Netscape, and Sun in one fell swoop.

A hot topic these days is Internet Security ... and we are fortunate to have an excellent speaker that has become available to us for the April 9th meeting; so we have asked Mr. Gore and Mr. Gates to speak at a later meeting.

Both Mr. Gore and Mr. Gates understood our decision to replace them with Mr. Ching ... and they have both tentatively committed to speaking to RMIUG next year on April 1st, 1997 ... ;-)


The Tuesday, April 9 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature a presentation on Security Technology on the Internet. Our presenter is Greg Ching (greg.ching@sun.com) who works in OEM/Reseller sales for SunSoft (http://www.sun.com/sunsoft/), the software subsidiary of Sun Microsystems, Inc. Mr. Ching, a Computer Systems Engineering graduate from Stanford University, will be discussing technology used for secure transactions and access control on the Internet. He will also be able to provide an update and answer questions during the Q&A period on Sun Microsystem's Java Workshop product. Feel free to email questions before the talk to Mr. Ching. SunSoft has also graciously invited RMIUG members to learn more about Sun security products at a Sun Open House April 18 in Englewood. See http://www.sun.com/events/denver.html for details.

The RMIUG meeting is Tuesday, April 9, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for informal networking and refreshments). The meeting will be held at the Department of Commerce (NIST) Building at 325 Broadway in Boulder, one traffic light South of Baseline. This facility holds 510 people. Park in the Dept. of Commerce lot, go in the main door (faces East), and find the main auditorium just to the right of the main entrance. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we will be passing the hat (ie, Nike shoebox ;-) to defray the room rental charge we incur.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from Internet One of Boulder for sponsoring refreshments and XOR Network Engineering for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & WWW site.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table in the lobby.

There is an email mailing list set up for this group.
