From penned diary entry…hence the date:

January 19th – Eve of Joe Biden’s Inauguration and not better time to write than now…Apprehension, delight, fear, anger, intelligent remorse.

January 21st – Do not know Tony Longson’s work, but as a member of the several network lists, it is clear that due to Covid 19 and other ailments…computer scientists, theorists, computer artists, are getting on and dying out…a whole generation of Web 1.0 users, who made enormous contributions in the very early stages of computer art, are leaving us.

We Remember Tony Longson, R.I.P.
