Who is writing your e-mail?

It seems that 2010 is going to be an interesting year. First, the Google-China controversy, and now this from NetWitness (also covered in here and here, among other places).

Why Science? Because it works! Kind of ...

Every once in a while I get into a discussion on whether or not it is difficult to enter the scientific community. My theory is that it rests mostly on motivation and self confidence, as is excellently demonstrated by the example of professors Zola and Charlie Chrobak.

I am not really familiar with their current work [pdf], but I have a feeling that it is related to some previous research on Artificial Intelligence.

Thanks to Dr Risto Vaarandi for pointing me to this wonderful story of the underdogs in science.
