As another non-professional in the field  for whom visits to this list have
become a daily addiction I'd like to cast my vote for Barry Popik. While
I'm not always sure just what he's researching nor what becomes of all the
information he pours out, I'm intrigued by his travels,his curiosity and how
he can carry out his function as a traffic court judge (if that is what he
is) while traveling all over the world.

And while I' m on here I wonder if anyone can tell me where the term "24/7"
started. I've heard two sources proposed: 1) the African-American community
and 2) the Silicon Valley people.

Thanks for any information on this.
