When I first heard about the Prometheus Project a few years ago, I thought it was a great concept with a lot of potential. However, I seem to remember reading on this list that it was defunct. Regardless, given the fact that there have been virtually no progress reports made available (other than in a few specific areas), it is difficult to imagine Paul as being able to attract investors. For the project to be successful at this stage of development, Paul needs to market its potential to an audience which may have the means and desire to bring such an endeavour to fruition. I wish the Prometheus Project the best of fortunes.
