  • Hi gang!

    I was just reading an article and it reminded me of you all esp. Herr Longbörgenssen and our discussions about ethics and whatnot.  Anyway, just popped in to say hello and miss you all!

    In case you're wondering - this is the article:

    great article. I think you have to assemble really smart people, let them work a problem, bounce it off the masses as a means of generating ideas you may have missed, then ultimately let the smart people make the decision. the alternative is anarchy and mob rule.
