Extreme Computing - The Cybo, submitted by David. The title claims, "The future is now." If the future is hundreds of graduate students wearing pounds of wires and hunks of metal on their head, I might as well shoot myself now.
In Vedic culture, the honorific 'Sri' or 'Shree', meaning 'True' is bestowed upon great men and women, usually spiritual gurus. (For example, Sri Aurobindo). In European culture, the title 'Sir' is bestowed on great men as a recognition of merit and service. (Sir Isaac Newton). Now, Extreme Computing bestows the honorary title 'Cy' to those great souls who are leading the way into our techno future. Those brave men and women who, resistant to the jeering purists strive with all their power to higher and higher echelons of techno integration.

Hows about you, me, and five uncomfortable minutes in my basement apartment next to the dusty Christmas tree that's still up from my last visit with my estranged children.
The Upper Kitchen Cabinet Where Your Roommate Keeps His Food: You’ll 'need the footstool' to reach your roommate’s 'fine selection' of 'stale cereal,' but he'll never notice if 'only a little is missing from each box.' Feel less guilty by reminding yourself that Jeff 'acts weird around your girlfriend,' and always 'asks about her.' What a 'creep.'
This ain't your daddy's globe...! .... or is it?!
