Dennis-

Are you saying that the ACC/Transistor allegations have no
credence because Corso's story indicates otherwise?  This must,
of course, mean that you have had a change of heart regarding
some of Corso's story and that "Corso the Conquerer" comment was
merely a holdover from previous beliefs.
. . .<g>

I don't know much about Bob Wolf, and still find the ACC story of
interest.  You seem to want to link Corso with the ACC story,
which makes no sense (as you point out).  ACC hasn't indicated
any linkage, and Corso certainly didn't, and the continuing
discussion of such a relationship (even in passing) merely serves
to muddy the waters and doesn't lead to a rational discussion of
the situation.  Of course, I can gather from your tone that you
believe this entire discussion is nonsense and not worth wasting
time on.  Several prominent researchers would probably disagree,
including one who believed there was a lack of continuity in the
development of the transistor long before Corso or ACC hit the
scene (but I'll let him speak for himself).

Your skepticism is healthy, but let's keep the discussion on a
level playing field and not add to the confusion.  It does little
more than provide your critics with ammunition.

Of course the "transistor code" (or transistor technolgy) wasn't
developed in a matter of weeks or months.  There is a paper trail
that shows semi-conductor research had been ongoing for years.
However, that would not preclude the incorporation of concepts or
technology that was based upon the examination of foreign
material.  The military did this with captured weopens of war,
and it would be no different for a capture alien craft.  I have
contended in other posts that our scientists and engineers would
not have been able to understand any technolgy unless we already
had the technological foundation to understand it.  If we were
already very close to developing an effecient transistor, and
several viable "hints" dropped out of the sky, then they could be
quickly adopted in the manner described.  If the source of those
"hints" was protected by national security, then a paper trail
would have to be developed to prevent (or defend against) any
patent challanges. Shulman has indicated that the original
transisotr patent was only given tentative approval at first
because the application failed to show a clear development
history.  I would like to see if there are any Patent Office
files in the archives to show how that application was handled,
but there's so much to do and so little time.

I would add that Corso didn't spend much time in his "seeding"
efforts. He (allegedly) had control of the material for about two
years, and in that time helped with the development of a number
of breakthroughs.

On another note, I was sorry to hear that you have stepped down
as Editor of the MUFON Journal.  You're efforts have been
appreciated.

Steve
