jhendler: best line - reporter asks "when can we transport humans" and Australian scientist replies "I think teleporting of that kind is very, very far away," Dr Lam says. "We don't know how to do that with a single atom yet.

AaronSw: Even then he was complaining about how it had turned into a radio sort of listen-only think rather than a collaborative community.

AaronSw: Wow, Tim is talking about annotation servers.
