#3 Typical DARPA fishing project. Proof of concept and prototype delivery undoubtedly scheduled for the spring or summer of 2039.

#4 "The DARPA - half hucksters, half loonies."

Someone has to fund the half-wacky blue-sky R&D. Hewlett Packard and Bell Labs are not doing it anymore. Shall I note the irony that this msg is traveling over what was originally a DARPA project - the Internet?

#6 SteveS - Bell Labs doesn't exist anymore except as a brand name. Most of the former labs locations have been shut down and the staff laid off.

#8 Leslie Crusher from STAR TREK:NG and his escaped nanomachines/nanytes are on a ship-wide rampage again??? I could say "trained cockroaches" and "geckos" but USDOD-DARPA prob means fake/robo-snakes, 'pedes, and other fav robo creepy crawlers.
