"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Science is cool!

Sometimes the creativity of the scientific community leaves me breathless. A programmer in Sweden who specializes in genetic programming decided to tackle proving evolution this weekend for fun. He was able, though his program, to recreate the Mona Lisa in under 1,000,000 generations. It's pretty amazing. Of course, like any good science experiment, this leads to more questions than answers. Hopefully he will spur more folks to tackle this kind of problem in the future.
