HC can't (or won't) think of a single reason why a funding-poor,
unconnected inventor would go to a George Lucas who just made $350 million
from a movie, has a droid obsession, and owns Lucas Arts, for backing. What
can I say to this. Joel is exactly correct when he said "is a pretty good
bet for further funding assuming the demonstration goes well."
