From the meeting June 18
Dave Behling introduced his accomplished brother Marshall (our speaker) and 14 other family members and friends who attended virtually.  Marshall was an official member of the unofficial fraternity of Pi Omega Tau (you figure it out) at UNR during the glory days when pranks were semi-accommodated.  These will not be repeated here.
Marshall shared the tale of his experience developing a highly successful product, Astral-Tune (sic), which paved the way for the Sony Walkman.  Sony was able to appropriate the idea due to bad patent advice from the family lawyer.  Reader alert: always pick the right kind of attorney.  Although Marshall "lost everything" due to SBA and personal loans used to develop the company, he expressed no regrets to the loss or the debauchery that ensued promoting the product.  Probably because of his many later successes.
He also shared information about helping develop and implement the security protocols for the secure socket lock (SSL) in 1974, which provides certificates between server and client on the internet.  One implementation is Veresign, which many Rotarians have used to virtually sign legal documents.  Marshall also clarified that while Al Gore may not have invented the internet, he definitely played a key role in obtaining funding for its commercialization.
Marshall is welcome back to RSR anytime, whether to regale us with more stories, or just to visit.  Thank you, Dave, for "securing" an informative and entertaining speaker.

Achievement Beyond Obstacles. RSR and 3 other local clubs, committed to 6 sponsors for our ABO high school grads.  Even though they didn't speak in person, they applied for scholarships and went through a lengthy process, for which each was awarded a stipend.  We will have taped speeches and/or interviews later in the year.  Please let Bob or Jonnie know if you are willing to sponsor one of our outstanding students for $100.  If we have six sponsors an anonymous RSR member will match the donations. 


Keeping in touch is important, so let Bob Stewart (rotarystewart@gmail.com) or Jonnie (jonnie.pullman@gmail.com) know of any news so we can put in in the bulletin, which will continue on at least a weekly basis.
