Bill & Ken's Home Page Party
(Music if you please, Maestro!)
Some people just never grow up. Two of them, Bill Gamber and
Ken Withers, created these pages.
Even though we are both 40ish, our apartment in Boston looks
like the home of two 12 year olds: bicycles, train sets, stuffed
animals, a 5-foot inflatable mummy, collections of cows, old stereoscope
and View-Master slides...
We do have some serious interests as well. Ken has designed
the Tour de Graves, a bike tour of Boston's historic burying grounds,
which he runs in conjunction with the Boston Parks Department.
Bill is currently researching the Louisiana Purchase Exposition,
the St. Louis World's Fair of 1904. We both have a long-standing
interest in archaeology (only armchair archaeology thus far),
especially of Egypt and the Holy Lands.
We like to host parties, where a motley collection of artists,
musicians, neighborhood activists, British expatriots, real ale
drinkers, competition cyclists, lawyers, computer hackers, academic
historians, bike messengers, and occasional mainstream Americans
will show up to sample home brew, play with our toys, and eat
little cocktail hotdogs with barbeque sauce.
But we can't have parties all the time, so we've decided to
move the party to the World Wide Web, and here it is.
Feel free to wander from room to room. There's even a kitchen
(medieval, but still a kitchen) which is where all the really
interesting people end up at any party. And don't just sit there,
participate. Every page of our own material ends with a response
button, and we'll periodically collect the responses (that we
like) and present them on a special "e-mail to the editors"
So welcome to Bill & Ken's house party. You just have to
provide your own cocktail hotdogs and
be careful not to drip barbeque sauce on your keyboard.
