Subject: Publishing Query

I have a question about publishing material accumulated via networks.
Does anyone have any suggestion as to how to find out what is public
domain? Here are the facts:

I have been accumulating 700+ pages of recipies from a un-named
network. Some of these might be from copywrited sources...I don't
know. What guidelines might I follow? Any comments from the
readership would be appreciated. --Bi\\

Subject: Re: QUERRY references on graphic user interfaces

W.R.T. my query for references on graphic user interfaces please mail
everything to me unless you have good reason to broadcast more
generally. If I get something substantial together, I'll announce it
and make it available on the net (either you can ftp it or I'll email
it to you).

I did not make a DIALOG search; I don't have ready access to it. I
guess I am being a little old fashioned, but I believe I can get a
better list of important references from people more easily. But the
results of any electronic search are appreciated. You can mail to me
as a msg. or thru US Mail : mark richer, stanford university,
knowledge systems laboratory, 701 Welch Road, Bldg. C, Stanford CA

The PROTEAN project at Stanford has an iris not far from my desk, but
they are using it as an output device linked to a XEROX 1108 and a Vax
and do not have window software for the IRIS now.

Subject: New Mailing List

After some footwork, the Security mailing list has been created. Its
incoming address is Security@Rutgers, and is moderated by me. The
incoming stuff is not digestified, but it is filtered to keep things
of questionable legality/ content from escaping out to the network.
This list supports the standard Arpanet -request address convention as

Knowledge of locks and things generally runs fairly high among
hackers, as I'm sure most of us know. Part of the security business
is that there must be some people knowledgeable enough to defeat and
subsequently repair security devices in the event of problems.
Unfortunately there are also those who posess this knowledge and use
it to commit crimes. And there is a third category, the hackers.
These are the people who often tread a thin edge between crime and
knowledge. Because of this, the discussion of security is often a
ticklish issue.

Unfortunately the word ''hacker'' has been misused by the media and
now is shrouded in a criminal context in minds everywhere. There are
quite often hackers who started out as ''crackers'' in high school,
perhaps, or fell in with a bunch of destructive types but eventually
learned that Hacking is a lot more fun than Cracking, involves the
same sort of cleverness, and is legal to boot. It is this kind of
hacking that this list deals with, in the field of security in
general, be it electronic, physical, or computer-related.

Therefore, this list is designed to provide a forum for discussion of
any and all security topics. Since the original idea was to name this
list Locksmiths@Rutgers, discussions about physical security and
hardware are welcomed, but to broaden out into computer security and
electronic access control and such is also valid. In other words, any
subject matter relating to the *improvement* and *implementation* of
security systems is okay, while how to *defeat* them is not.

A good example is the already well-established list called Telecom,
which is devoted to the discussion of telephone networks, hardware,
and company happenings. It is not a phreak bboard where everyone
calls in and leaves MCI access numbers and such. There are many other
things that one can discuss about the telephone network that has no
relation to toll fraud at all, like ESS internals, what LATAs are, and
new products on the market. The same idea applies to the security
business. Articles containing information like ''How to trivially
open Kwikset locksets'' could be used for criminal purposes and would
not be forwarded to the list, but info about how to take them apart
and fix them is legitimately useful and would not really be
questioned. It is hoped that the list will collect some legal wizards
who can help the rest of us determine just where those fine lines lie,
so that we can host some deeply technical discussions without
violating the law or common sense.

At any rate, it's off and rolling. Please forward questions
and such about the list itself [additions, bugs, etc]

I don't know if I mentioned this organization. I am on the mailing
list for The Report Store. I will include the description that they
supply with their catalogue.

12th International Conference


Very Large Data Bases


August 25-28, 1986


VLDB Conferences are intended to identify and encourage
research, development and applications of database systems.
The Twelfth VLDB Conference will bring together researchers
and practitioners to exchange ideas. We are eager for
papers on new concepts, new ideas and new research results
having to do with databases and knowledge bases. We not
only solicit, but seek and encourage papers describing work
in which an implemented system embodies a new concept. All
submitted papers will be read by the Program Committee.


Major topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Data Models
Database Theory
Database Design Methodology and Tools
Distributed Databases
Query Optimization
Concurrency Control
User Interfaces
Database Hardware
Data Organization
Security Integration of Logic and Database
Knowledge-Base Systems
Object-Model Representation
Engineering Databases
Office Information Systems
Multi -media Databases

Subject: Planning a new bboard...

Hi all!

Forgive me for intruding on your bulletin boards.... I am
interested in starting up a new bulletin board for those people who
are participating in, or are interested in participating in a
community band (as in wind ensemble). There seems to be a real
upsurge of them in the Delaware Valley, and maybe it is more
widespread than that. I am hoping that we can exchange ideas and
comments on good and bad arrangements, fund raising ideas,
organizational problems, etc. If you are interested in seeing
something like this, please send me mail -- if I don't hear from
enough people this bulletin board will never be! I am:

(ARPANET): sm...@UDel-dewey.ARPA
(CSNET): smith@UDel-dewey@csnet-relay
