Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Not Science Fiction Much Longer

Last night while watching the Discovery Science Channel, there was a program about the BrainGate System. It uses a device planted on the brain to sense electrical activity. Then, it correlates that data to move a pointer on a computer screen, allowing the person to control TV, lights, even a wheelchair.

I never thought that something like this was possible. While it is still in trials, I hope that it can be refined, expanded, and brought to the world.

In fact, it already is. The NueroPort System will be available for limited release in early 2006. It will help monitor patients undergoing surgery for crainiotomies and in elective surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of severe epilepsy.
