Why? May. 14th, 2002 09:40 am
The gov't seems determined to promote social exclusion and waste public money on this one. Having heard the article on "Today" (and that show annoys the hell out of me), it's clear that they're calling this an experiment because they expect it to fail.

Let's guess who they'll blame it on.

i was at that meeting. my boss has just produced a radical new design for a solar sail, and i've been doing some of the calculations to prove it would work. today's to-do list includes reading colin mcinnes' "solar sailing" in the hopes of understanding more about things so that we can lower our mass per unit area still lower than we've so far achieved.

(see my most recent lj entry if you want the gory details of the meeting).

That's got to beat trying to cram web browsers into set-top boxes for a living ;)

Good luck with it :)
