  • Nascar driver Tony Stewart hits and kills racer in sprint-car race - A driver has died after being struck by a NASCAR star's car following a collision on a race track in New York state. Veteran NASCAR driver Tony Stewart hit young racer Kevin Ward Jr, who was walking on the track after they collided on the previous lap. Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said his department's investigation is not criminal and that Stewart was 'fully co-operative' and appeared 'very upset' by what had happened. A video of the incident posted on YouTube shows 20-year-old Ward, wearing a black helmet and firesuit on the dimly lit track, leave his vehicle, which had spun into the wall at the side of the track, apparently to protest with Stewart. Ward is shown pointing in the direction of Stewart as he completes his next lap, gesticulating angrily as other racers pass him. The racer then steps into the oncoming traffic before he is suddenly struck and flung 50ft along the track. The video showed Ward standing to the right of Stewart's familiar No 14 car, which seemed to kick out from the rear and hit him.

Ref "By 2020, You Could Be Using an Optical SuperComputer"...

One can say decades are marked in technological achievements where one achievement is the foundation for the next. The 60s, the transisitor, the 70s the mainframe, the 80s the PC, the 90s networking, the 2000s telecommunications. In the early 2000s, several optical components companies tried to R&D data, address, and control signals on bi-directional buses - to make an optical interface between chips. Miniturization of leds/lasers onto chip wasn't there yet but the concept could radically change board design and processing efficiency. Today, if chips become optical internally and matched with optical interfaces, you're likly looking at the next tech advancement, then quantum computing. Deus Ex here we come.

I'll probably still have to turn every usb connector twice before it fits.

At this point I think it's all about cost but I'm all for Deus Ex tech. I believe NASA is already in the mix and going to test a prototype optical cpu anytime now.
