Just sent the following to Linda Moulton Howe. Figured
you all might also find it of interest.

Linda,

On Thursday, July 19, 2007, NPR radio affiliate KWMU broadcast a
"St. Louis on the Air" show on Cryptography. The sole featured
guest (interviewed by radio host Don Marsh, former TV news
anchor for the St. Louis ABC affiliate station) for the entire
hour was Elonka Dunin. As noted on the KWMU website, she is a
Cryptographer; Game Developer for Simutronics Corp. and author
of The Mammoth Book of Secret Codes And Cryptograms, and was
also featured (on Tuesday, July 24, 2007, in St. Louis) on the
PBS "NOVA scienceNOW" segment on deciphering the CIA's Langley
headquarters Kryptos sculpture.

Here's the URL for the show's info, which includes clickable
links for downloadable podcast (both MP3 and Windows Media
files) for that specific show. It's a very interesting show,
well worth listening to in its entirety:

'Isaac' is the very first call-in to the show. (Since it is a
local show, one might assume that 'Isaac' is a resident of the
St. Louis Metro area.) At about 29min./45sec. into the show,
Marsh notes that Isaac has been waiting a long time and that
he'll be first up. At about 30min./45sec. Marsh takes Isaac's
call. Isaac immediately notes that he and Elonka have met before
at the "2600 meetup", and proceeds to ask about how long it took
for the first three of the four Kryptos codes to be broken.

Doing a Google search on the term "2600 meetup" referenced,
yields this URL which is related to computer-code 'Hackers and
Phreaks':

Here's the URL for Elonka Dunin's website:

www.elonka.com

Interestingly, she has a link there for an "announcement" which
notes: "The Cyrillic Projector Code - Cracked!" When you go to
that link you'll find both a pictures and the code. (If I'm not
mistaken, there has been speculation that the 'symbols' or
'writing' on the 'drones' is similar to Cyrillic.) Here's that
specific link on Elonka's web site:

The Elonka-'Isaac' connection may very well just be an interesting
coincidence. Sure found it an intriguing possibility, though.

Just in case, here's the fall-back URL for access to both the
current and online archived downloadable WAMU radio shows:
