      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Vince Miller and the International Libertarian Movement

2 posts in this topic

I remember Vince Miller very well. I used to attend the "Free Exchange" meetings in San Francisco every month, and Vince was always there. He was one of the nicest, warmest, friendliest guys you could ever want to meet. His contributions to the libertarian movement, via his creation of Libertarian International and his idea of having libertarian conferences in different cities around the world, were invaluable. He should serve as a role model to others interested in assuming the mantle of leaders in the libertarian movement.

In the article, Jeff mentioned Vince's love of shooting. I actually had the pleasure of going shooting with Vince at a gun range, along with my wife and several other regular attendees of Free Exchange. It was a lot of fun, and I will always remember the experience. I really miss Vince a lot.
