Project Blackbox: shake test
By Mark Richardson on Jun 11, 2007
You may have read Jonathan's blog entry on the Project Blackbox shake test at UCSD.
I sent a little note to some reporters this morning highlighting the YouTube video. One reporter, Martin Heller of Infoworld, decided to publish the note directly onto his blog.
While one Project Blackbox is in San Diego getting shaken, another has been touring Canada and Europe. Paris, the UK, Germany, Switzerland. Tre settimane fa e' arrivato a Roma.
I'm told that one skeptical UK analyst said as he began a tour of the computer filled shipping container something along the lines of "Ah, there are the mirrors, now where is the smoke?" But...I'm also told that like many, once this skeptical analyst had a chance to tour the "Box" and hear directly from the Sun team driving the project he moved from a skeptic to a believer.
Now is Martin Heller still a skeptic?....I'm not sure.
