Didn't they also get 'more' money to continue the research? If so, when are they going to give it back? In another article I read on this it stated to the effect, "It's not customary for universities to return such funds." I also found this quote interesting... “As a matter of fact, I think the team came up with more novel ideas during the past four months than the past four years I have been at Iowa State University,” Cho wrote. Translation: "Han's work got us the money, but we weren't counting on him to bring us a win."
One year the USPS went before Congress to explain why a postage increase was necessary. Two weeks after it was approved the heads split several million dollars worth of bonuses. Wonder how much they're getting this year.
I had to look that word up. I thought it had something to do with bicycles.
Can't wait to see their new campaign, "There's a Badge for That."
But remember, before Myst there was Fool's Errand and 3 in Three. Both of which were major game changers as well. But alas, forgotten by all but we geekiest.
I read the linked article and find my original statement as compared to the Brown vs Electronic Arts case to be on point.
I wonder what would happen if you made a video game about a courtroom and made the judges look like judges in real life. And then have those judges make legal decisions they normally wouldn't make. Even show some taking bribes to throw cases. As long as they're in the setting they've achieved renown in, all's good. Right?
Several decades ago the way the mail was delivered was as follows... A van drove through town dropping off a mailman at the corner of each block. By the time the mailman was going up and down the block the van would be back to pick him up. Each van carried 7-10 carriers. Why the heck can we not go back to doing this again? It would cut down vehicle costs, automotive maintenance, etc... The only time you'd need more vans would be during the christmas season. Also, I remember quite well that when the Post Office asked for permission to raise rates one year, congress approved. Two weeks later it was announced the top 25 people at the Post Office split several million in bonuses. Hmmm...
When you're looking for a needle in a haystack, you don't make the haystack bigger.
...This Baud's For You!
Because the internet is this generations refrigerator. And mommy likes your drawing so much she's gonna put it up right here.
...Omni Magazine said the same thing and janitors would be highly paid by now. You know what's wrong with the 'out of work' paranoia? These futurists are forgetting one thing. What all these people will be doing is making and repairing those robots at a state/local level. Why ship robots across country when they can be built with cheap, limitless, local labor?
This isn't some sort of paid stunt to promote Sandra Bullock / George Clooney's latest movie is it?
So it's going to be called Sundialmen?
"Are you from the Department of Upperclass Hooligans?" "D.U.H.!"
