I caught Pierre Buffet in the Questel*Orbit stand just as he was putting on his coat to leave the show and head home to Paris.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have another winner.
Buffet, Directeur Général Délégué, Questel, SA, has attended all 31 London Online shows, including this one.
He remembers giving a talk at the first Online Information meeting in 1976. The subject? The PASCAL database, one of the first bibliographic databases,now published by INIST. "It was my first baby," he said.
[Thanks to Pete Rusch for the tip. Pete also confirms that Harry Collier, pictured further down the blog is also a 31-year vet, as I suspected.]
