The mentioned date seems to be unhistorical. Perhaps some kind of time travel. In January 1994 OS/2 2.1 for Windows was quite new and Warp was not announced until October 1994. The description could become true in October 2019.

Hi

I have this video from Warpstock 1999:
https://youtu.be/WCKr-2EJxE4?t=3463

Leonard's video is longer, the one that has Sigurd is just the last part, but it is great to have it in high quality (I'm still looking for the rest in high quality).
The initial part of the video was the Leonard explaining the importance of time and how long people wait in their lives. He says something like "IBM has a solution now..." and it goes to "It fits on your desktop and in your notebook...."

and also https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLMx84bRS-Hjhdooi2fITvg .

Hi again.

Is there any known date of the video presentation? This is the famous of Kate Mulgrew being the mater of ceremony, right? It looks to me it is on 1994, but wikipedia seems to have the date wrong in its reference and says it was 1996 for Warp 4.0. I don't think she was hired twice.

Hi Martin,

if you stop the Video at Minute 31.28 and 31.43 seconds you will find the Calendar of the BonusPac open, where they are demonstrating how easy it is to make an appointment using the IBM Works Applications "Phone Manager" and "Calender" and Drag+Drop.

They are speaking about a meeting "Next week" and the calender shows a week in October, 1994. Please see the pictures. The Appointment with David then is fixed for Friday, 21th October, 1994.

It seems to me that at 31.28 one can see the Appointment: "10.00 AM Warp Launch New York", it seems to me to be Wednesday, may be the week before they fixed the Appointment with David Barnes (for demonstration). If yo take a closer look, you may be able to proof this, the quality of the video is not as good as it ought to be for this question. But I think Wednesday, the 12th of October 1994 is a good guess.

There's no reason for guessing. If you don't trust in IBM's information a second source could be NYT (https://www.nytimes.com/1994/10/12/business/ibm-displays-its-os-2-warp.html). All Warp products were announced by Tuesday in the US - זייער פּשוט.

Thank you very much, Andreas Kohl, aka ak120. Just another guess

Is the video still available to download somewhere? I sent an Email to Mr Fastenrath but he hasn't answered.
