wisdom speech link?
Could we get a link to the 'life changing' wisdom speech referred to early on in the interview?
Many thanks to all for what was a fascinating and inspiring interview and best of luck to Patrick in his battle.
luggable is cool
wow. I remember seeing these when I was a kid and wanting one so bad. Didn't have any need for it, but the luggable form factor automatically scores major kit fetish points. Important military/scientist types would need something like this in the field... hmmm.. I wonder if someone sells something like this with todays power. Say a luggable rack type thing.. 8 cores, 4Tb raid, many Gb ram.... oh yeah.... hmm too much coffee this morning must lie down...
..paints a picture of a universe full of sentient life but everyone attempting to remain stealthed (planet sized faraday cage perhaps?) because they are scared that the next race over might drop by and eat/mate/probe/shave them. And that's why the SETI guys are wasting their time.
also... isn't beaming out "fancy a fight / hello sailor etc." a kind of attempted "death by cop" or rather "genocide by alien bastard".. can't we all sue them for reckless endangerment?
