Natural's 30th anniversary

Believe it or not, this is the 30th anniversary of the release of Natural. I am going to include a retrospective of Natural in the November issue of Inside Natural.

I would appreciate any rememberences from those of you who, like me, were around then. This would include comments about direct calls, adamint, adascript, etc.; as well as Version 1 of Natural.

Please send them to



Wow, 30 years. And just like Cobol, it will be around for another 30.
