greginnj writes "The New York Times reports that neuroscientists have created a connection between a live monkey's brain and a walking robot that allowed the monkey to control the steps of the robot as it walked on a treadmill. The monkey was in North Carolina; the robot was walking in Japan. At first the monkey walked in sync with the robot (which it could see on a large screen). Then, when the monkey's treadmill stopped, it continued to make the robot walk. Cue the whatcouldpossiblygowrong tags now!"

Raymond (ESR) has publicly announced that he is giving up on Fedora and switching to Ubuntu: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2 007-February/msg01006.html Not content to alert RedHat alone, it appears he has also sent out press releases to alert the media: http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=07/02/21/13402 37 . The announcement has already drawn smackbacks from David Cantrell of RedHat and Alan Cox."
