Check this out. I've been doing background reading for a Pink Floyd tribute CD. But that's not important right now.
Once upon a time, an intrepid little Usenet alt.music.pink-Floyd group was entrenched in the mysterious puzzle presented by the Publius Enigma. I've read emails and original Usenet postings scattered over various Pink Floyd websites. These cats were into it. That's pretty cool, but it makes me wonder, when all that concern and brainpower and dedication is channeled in one conundrum -- what can't they accomplish, what can't they win? Yeah, they are workin' it.
Imagine -- if you will -- that that braintrust is handling your spleen, your tax deferments, replacing your rotting foundation or coddling your transmission, then it's good to be you, yes?
If you could harness all the energy fired in those alt.music.whateverbandyouplease little synapses, then...Wow!
We need to send them to G8, We need them on the Beltway, in our schools - we need them in every tech support call we make, damnit.
Musicologists? Detectives? Whatever you call them, we need them.
