Replying to LO26355 --

Dear Herb,

I received the snail mail of your University's invitation to a tribute to
you on March 19, 2001. I appreciate your home-made stories of your
learning organizations.

I know that day will come when, Simon's University starts to learn and
teach professionally about Administrative Behavior, the Sciences of the
Artificial and complex information processing and when, your different
versions of Models without 'revisions' any more and when, your Navigations
without maps really sailed to the sun and when, the water mixes with oil
with 'smiles' finally when, the learning CMU and HAS's friends no more
'papers' generation, no more biased random walks, no more transformations
of English Alexander Pope to Chinese Pope Alexander, no more reflections
on 'bounded rationality' in Human Affairs and Cognition with love, no more
Foreign Places and Languages never experienced, no more De Gustibus est
Disputandum humor. Someday we'll meet in Cosmos Club somewhere and I
interview with your sharpest needle in the Haystack, we might agree that
we had our satificed lives.

explicit attention to the techniques of learning and teaching.' in H. A.
Simon's 'Learning to Teach and Learn'.
