stalebread writes "MSNBC has an article looking at an internet-based 'many hands make light work' approach to data sifting. From the article: 'The federal government is making public a huge trove of documents seized during the invasion of Iraq, posting them on the Internet in a step that is at once a nod to the Web's power and an admission that U.S. intelligence resources are overloaded. Web surfers have begun posting translations and comments, digging through the documents with gusto.'"

By Lenz's Law, the only way that you can get a magnetic field from electric current is to have a current input varying in the time domain (AC).

It's the other way around. The only way you can get electric current from a magnetic field is to have the field input varying in the time domain.

Otherwise how would my MRI magnets produce a magnetic field? (DC current is "stored" on the superconducting coil inside them)
