Uh, if you don't mind I would like to hear how you would like to accomplish this especially at the low end of things (about 1 G$). A time schedle (MMM taken into account) would be nice as well.

Also, the claim 'I could build' it would seem to become objectionable, since you'd wind up more a glorified administrator than an implementer. The superintelligence would then be the product of a superorganism (team) than a single individual (Eliezer).
