Editor's Note

At Bernie Galler's suggestion, we arranged a discussion among some of the SAGE participants. I was dubious at first because the number of major contributors to SAGE is SO large that I did not see how we could have a real discussion among so many, and yet I did not feel competent to leave any out. After a while, however, we were able to attract a group of people who not only contributed themselves but who represent groups of major contributors.

We were fortunate that Jay Forrester could come from MIT, Herb Benington represented SDC, Bob Bright had been at AT&T, Bob Crago at IBM, Jack Harrington at AFCRC and Lincoln Division 2, Jack Jacobs at Lincoln Division 6, Major General Al Shiely (retired) at the Air Force, Norman Taylor at Lincoln Division 6, and Bob Wieser at Lincoln Division 6.
