OEIS 100K E-Party To celebrate the A100000 milestone in November 2004, N.J.A. Sloane opened
the gates to an  electronic party  featuring pictures of collaborators, contributors and fans of the OEIS.
At that point, Sloane had kept the project alive for 40 years with incredible stamina and daily dedication.

In 2009,  Sloane tranferred his rights to the encyclopedia to the newly created  OEIS foundation,
thus ensuring the perennity of this incredible asset for future generations of mathematicians.
The OEIS was hosted by Sloane's employer  (AT&T)  until 2010.

Neil Sloane  himself retired from  AT&T  in 2012 but remains president of the  OEIS foundation.
He still participates in the daily development of the encyclopedia and calls the shots
in the delicate cases where even the most senior OEIS editors need guidance.

I'm just an occasional OEIS contributor but I've linked to it more than 267 times in  Numericana.
I'm still proudly claiming  (tongue-in-cheek)  a  0.02%  "ownership" of the OEIS.
However, the accelerating OEIS development has reduced the true figure to 0.01% or so.
Here are my contributions:

Notes :

A108942  (which is now an unrelated sequence)  was created on 2005-07-20 by Jonathan Vos Post (whom I befriended electronically only  much  later)  as a home for the  finite  sequence  (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,18,33).  Jonathan posted that with a reference to an article of mine and a piece of prose cut-and-pasted from it  (his motivations are explained elsewhere).  On 2009-10-24, M. F. Hasler  pointed out that the thing had already been filed much earlier as A007496, which is where the aforementioned prose can now be found.  This goes to show that almost every "cute" sequence is likely to be  already  part of OEIS.  Read before you write!

The simple sequence listed above as B101086 is not part of OEIS, although it was submitted at the indicated date, because it differs from two previously listed sequences  (A001607 and A077020)  by  signs  only.  Yet, that sequence has the simplest closed form among its siblings.  Originally, the EIS  (not yet "Online")  was essentially devised as a collection of unsigned sequences  (in the early printed versions, the lexicographic organization of the integer sequences was insensitive to signs).  This  historical bias  is still present in the current OEIS.  For example, I submitted A120629 as a sequence consisting entirely of  negative  values  (arguably, that's the best way ro present it).  It was immediately retitled and recorded as a sequence of absolute values, which now stands...

Here are the neologisms I coined  (I don't know where else to put that list).
The above list is mostly for my own records, but it might help others trace the origins of words.
