Abstract

I could easily speak about Paul Baran for an hour or two, or even more. I feel privileged to have this opportunity to speak about him for a minute or two. We were collaborating on a book at the time of his death, and had been for a number of years. We used to curse the obstacles which delayed our completing the work—other commitments, separation by a continent, his illness. And yet I must confess that I would not have liked it to go too fast. Collaborating with Paul was, in terms of intellectual stimulation and genuine human friendship, the best thing that could happen to a man. I would not have wanted it one day shorter; I would have loved to have had it many years longer, on a whole succession of books.
