This is Kay: Jan, 2004. With debian in his sights.  I saw Kay, Nov 2000
(approx), as the resident Disney Visionary, being paid, used, whatever, to
give Disney a claim of right to legitimacy in the serious educational
software market.  The right that would have no doubt been abused.  And Kay
would be from a different planet to imagine otherwise. And I saw him treat
his audience to Goofy goofing about a squeak screen.

Alan seems to make things up as he goes along.

I would sincerely ask him to desist from inventing our future.
