I was just listening to a podcast posted by the Long Now Foundation. [1] Having seen some snapshots of the heritage of UNIX near Berkeley, specifically BSD and Linux, I was thinking of who might be preserving this heritage. It would greatly benefit UCB and the public to share and celebrate the heritage which we all now benefit from every day in ways small and large. I feel like exploring this heritage in a way others might also benefit.

I am neither a documentary filmmaker nor an event planner. Perhaps Stewart Brand can help. However with some strategizing I can imagine an event worthy of significant funding and public interest. I look forward to discussing this idea further with others interested in making something happen.
