My family and I are touched by the decision to create the Eric Vero Technical Award in Eric’s honor. This year’s nominee was Ed Kristol, a volunteer who worked with Eric almost from the start of SeniorNet and contributed many hours of his time and energy both in the lab and at the nationalGrid hub. Together they worked with a team of dedicated individuals starting as early as 2001 until the end of the project in 2010. To paraphrase Ed Kristol, here is his response to receiving the award:
“Slava: I really do appreciate the honor. I also appreciate the years Eric and I and the others spent at KeySpan. I learned so much from Eric and the other volunteers that I still use. Again, thank you for the recommendation, this is an honor.”
Please join us in congratulating Ed in receiving this award. We hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. For some of you that attended the 2013 annual meeting, you should know that SeniorNet has made plans for the year 2061 when the next generation will join SeniorNet.
