sure, no problem.

no, not at all. i will produce a special tribute to heinz zemanek for the austrian national broadcasting corporation for our weekend computer magazine, and can put the file on my server afterwards, if you are interested.
> I did an interview with Heinz Zemanek back in 2008, on matters of communication between the East and the West. It was a very pleasant encounter.
he mentions a little bit of that in a talk he gave 2009. would be interesting to hear more, as i only know some east/west stories from the networking chaps in vienna, and the iiasa.
all the best,
