Manual[edit]

Jim didn't have much computer experience at that point. I told him about display technology and how it would eventually be used for page layout. I brought him to SAIL, where he saw Space War, etc. That visit was one thing that led Jim to redirect his career. Jim never worked at PARC. I did. The story of the genesis of copy/cut/paste is in the commentary on page 4 of the PUB Manusl - see http://www.nomodes.com/pub_manual.html. Also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gypsy_%28software%29, which is fairly accurate except that I had named cut and paste before ever having any contact with Ginn.

Expanded Article[edit]

After posting a draft of the existing article for 2 weeks for comment, I have finalized it. The expanded edit is possible because considerable additional information about the MFU has now become available online. This includes original material from its Course Catalogs and from its newsletter, The Free You; as well as an extended history of the MFU prepared from its catalogs and newsletters, from my personal experience as its attorney, and from additional research on the Free University Movement in the 1960's and the MFU's place in that movement. See: "Alive in the 60's: The Midpeninsula Free University" [1]

I have incorporated most of the material in the existing article into my edited version.
