I'm just back from the A4M conference and trying to sort through a couple of hundred messages... Lets see, q***** gets filed under AI, millenial madness goes into its file, nanotech comments go into its file and so on and so forth...

Whats this? Lets see "centrifuging guppies".... That doesn't sound like "SPACE", oh yes, that's right, I have this "catch-all" file called "Wierd Stuff"....

Its strange how that topic seems to be the bit bucket for some of the things on this list...
