Quick Q - Have any of you participated in the Future Cities Competition for National Engineering Week? I am just curious what you thought of it. I am doing this with my school and IT ROCKS! The focus of the competition and future city design is addressing how nanotechnology and sensor systems can be used to address and prevent deficiencies in infrastructure. I am developing my own opinion regarding the infrastructure but ... I was curious if any of you have ever thought about the implications of nanotechnology to society and also what it could do for the film industry if anyone applied it.

Have a great day!

My Grandpa has been in intensive care at Mercy hospital this past week (Yup 6 days in ICU.) They thought he may have had a stroke but it turns out he has Encaphalitis - a virus that infects and attacks your brain. Crazy, huh. Apparently the same virus that causes cold sores attacks the brains of 1 -2 people out of a million in the US each year. And, this form of Encaphalitis is the deadliest form. It kills 35% of the people who get it and seems that half the people who survive have permanent brain damage and half who survive are just fine. He is doing pretty well right now - considering (He was moved out of ICU and into a normal room in neurology) but if anybody feels inclined to say a prayer I would appreciate it.
