NSF never paid any of Gordon's expenses for anything, to my knowledge at
least.  He made an important contribution to the NATO meeting in Moscow in
1994 by delivering a well-thought-out and constructive charge to the
audience about how a bit more cooperation on everybody's part could improve
Internet service for large numbers of Russians.  I, as co-chair of the
event, was quite satisfied that I had spent NATO's money wisely by inviting
him to participate.  We even fed him (along with the other participants) on
NATO's tab.  Even with all that, it was still a good deal for NATO (he
drank much less vodka than most, BTW...).
