Eliezer, I don't see how lack of funding is an intrinsic obstacle to
starting programming!

It is an obstacle to hiring programmers for pay, but not to recruiting
volunteers to program in their spare time.

I have *no* funding for the "Real AI" aspects of my own AI projects, and
only very very scant funding for the commercial-product-oriented aspects,
but this is not stopping me from recruiting volunteers....
