To my knowledge you are correct. Stockholder and analyst views were never before an issue or the focus of tech stories. I think part of the change comes from the 'new' phenomenon of kickstarter/crowdsource financing which started fairly recently and part from the ridiculous way in which stocks now fluctuate based on some no-nothings comments to the media. I can see a future in which Bunsen Honeydews insights will affect the bottom line of venture capital/tech companies.

Tee hee! Back in the day, one of the points I made to the old farts was that I had passed the 20 WPM exam and had my K6BP call to show for it, but refused to use the code on the air until the requirement was gone. Nobody spat at me or punched me out, the worst that ever happened was a poor behaving slim using my call and a postcard from the ARRL observer who thouht it was me.

WSPR tells you when communication paths are open between two points at a specific frequency and S/N ratio. This is useful but does not span the extent of research that HAARP is directed to. One of the most interesting things about HAARP is that it can incite the formation of radio-reflective regions in the ionosphere. That takes a lot of power.

Sounds like a good idea. What I'd like to know is when has there ever been equal pay or equality in anything ? Even when it was just the 'good ole boys' club there were always the ins and the outs. Those that were part of the skull and bones frat scene and those that were not. The nouveau riche vs. the old money vs. the working class. No matter which side of the tracks you were born on equality has always been a struggle.
