+ - Art Induced Seizures

Submitted by qeorqe
qeorqe (853039) writes "Three visitors to the multimedia art installation "Zee" by Kurt Hentschlager may have suffered seizures. It was closed indefinitely after three incidents in its first three days. The exhibit consisted of a fog filled room where one's visual field is filled with changing and pulsing colored light patterns.

This is part of Pittsburgh's International Festival of Firsts. The festival also includes a four story high yellow rubber ducky in Pittsburgh's rivers."

This interview was the day after March 31.

"On March 31 the author of the Rybka program, Vasik Rajlich, and his family moved from Warsaw, Poland to a new appartment in Budapest, Hungary. The next day, in spite of the bustle of moving boxes and setting up phone and Internet connections Vas, kindly agreed to the following interview, which had been planned some months ago."

Isn't that an average of less than a dollar a day per metal detector gate. If only $1 was lost per day at each metal detector gate and there were only 200 airports with an average of only 6 metal detector gates each that would be $1*200*6*365 = $438000. Does the reported amount seem like a very low number?

Are all the detectors operated by TSA or are many operated by others?

If Comcast's acquisition of NBC/Universal is monopolistic, anticompetitive, or inappropriate for some other reason, why should they be able to "buy" an exemption with this agreement? If there is nothing wrong with the acquisition why should the government extort an agreement from them?

Is this profitable or beneficial to Comcast? If so why are they permitted artificially to discriminate against others?

If it is not profitable is the cost paid by the shareholders or their other customers?
