ISBN 9781695978553, for anyone who wants to know that.

I see it for sale on amazon.com and amazon.ca, paperback, `Independently
published.'  Does anyone know if it is likely to appear in bricks-and-mortar
bookshops any time soon?

BWK used Create Space, which is Amazon, to self publish. So, I suspect
that it won't be in brick-and-mortar shops.  They may can order for
you but in that case it'd probably be more expensive than just ordering
it yourself.

Since at least some of you are in contact with bwk, and since I haven't
seen it mentioned here, can someone please pass along a typo correction
with some semantic value?  The RTM worm was 1988, not '98.

And when you do, please pass along my appreciation for his kind words about
Mike Mahoney (my former thesis advisor, RIP) at the back when he was
talking about his sources.

And since Lee was mentioned in bwk's book...does anyone here know for sure
that Lee and Melinda Varian are still alive, and would they have contact
info for them they would be willing to share?  I worked for Melinda for a
while but have fallen out of touch.

I got mine the other day and am at least a third of the way thru...I’m trying to pace myself because I’m really enjoying it and am torn by wanting to see what I’ll learn next and how bummed I’ll be when I’m done :-)

I'm enjoying bwk's book very much, but it has me wondering. There are 
two stories I've heard that supposedly occurred at Murray Hill, but he 
didn't include them. I've read past the badge section and the "grepping 
for my keys" comment, so I believe I've come past the right point.

Without telling the actual stories here, one involves a monkey picture 
pasted onto a Bell Labs badge, the other is about an MTS who was late to 
a meeting because she was grepping her apartment for her keys. I've told 
these stories often, and they get a good laugh.

Does anyone have first hand knowledge of these stories, who told them, 
whether they are true, etc?

Thanks,

     Mary Ann

I don't know what happened at Bell Labs but I can tell a similar story
about what happened at Ford Aerospace, which was a very early commercial
Unix user (e.g. PWB in 1978).

Ford had secure entry points into the buildings, where you would go into
a pod that's similar to what you go though in airports these days.
While you were in the pod, you were supposed to show your badge
to a camera which was being monitored by a security person sitting
nearby. Most of these security people were humorless and seemed to
enjoy this task.

One of the people in my group was real joker. So, one day he decided
to paste a piece of a brown paper bag over his picture on his badge.
Along with this, he put a brown paper bag over his head, and went
into the security pod. The reaction of the security person was classic.
It took him a little while to overcome the fact that the badge matched
what he was seeing, and that he needed to investigate further.

That's similar but different in a couple of important ways. And it's not 
G.R. Emlin's, that's what reminded me of it.

Here is the badge story as I heard it.

Two MTS at Murray Hill were discussing their badges. It was routine to 
walk into the building, show the guard your badge, and keep walking.

One guy said "They never look at those things!  I'll bet I could paste a 
picture of a monkey on my badge, and he'd never notice it!". The other 
guy said "You're on!".

So the first guy pastes a monkey picture on his badge. The second guy 
tips off the guard, and watches from inside the building.

The first guy comes into the building and flashes his monkey badge to 
the guard. No reaction, so he keeps on walking. A few second later, the 
guard calls after him. "Hey, come back here! Let me see your badge." The 
guy knows he's in trouble, but he comes back and hands the guard his badge.

The guard looks at the badge. He looks at the employee. He looks at the 
badge. He looks at the employee. He looks at the badge.

Handing the badge back to the employee, he says "OK, you can go!"

You're right. Your story is very similar to mine. I wonder
if my friend heard the Bell Labs story and decided to try
it at Ford. Your description of the guard's reaction was
better, and more accurate, than mine.

In my case, I know it happened because I was there.

Regarding badge stories, my favorite is Richard Feynman, who found a hole in the fence at Los Alamos and one day exited four times without going in.  (Recollection of the story, I think in Surely You’re Joking…)

But that reminds me of my favorite arithmetic problem:

Q:  explain negative numbers
A;  Four people go into an empty room.  Seven people leave.  How many people have to go into the room before it is empty again?

Thanks to Jon's super response on the first story, we know it originally 
occurred at Ford Aerospace.

Let me tell the other story. Perhaps someone will know some details.

When I tell it, usually to nontechnical people, I prefix it by 
explaining that UNIX has 3 different grep programs, all of which find 
text in files. There is regular grep. There is fgrep, the "fixed grep", 
which is simpler and only looks for basic text. And there is egrep, the 
"enhanced grep", that will look for fancy patterns and is very powerful. 
You would expect that fgrep, being the simplest, would be the fastest, 
but as it turns out, egrep is the fastest and fgrep is the slowest.

One day at a meeting at Bell Labs, an MTS came rushing into the meeting, 
all out of breath. "Sorry I'm late, I was grepping my apartment for my 
keys."

Dryly, the boss replied "You should have used egrep. It's faster."

Amazon does have a small number of physical storefronts (for example, there’s one at Santana Row in San Jose, CA) and they’ll actually put print-on-demand books on the shelves there too. Shelf placement appears to be algorithmic by popularity so it wouldn’t surprise me to see Kernighan’s book the next time I pop in.
