A way to understand Polywell, then a way to manage projects?

Teahive. I checked the London Hackerspace out. It looks pretty awesome. If I was in London, I'd definitely want to go there.

MSimon. Thanks for your link. It's funny, I too have a lot of faith in crowdfunding. This is a great group! No regrets coming here.

I'm getting the impression that most amazing things in the world require a PhD. It's a powerful degree, especially today. If my impression is correct, a person like Tesla couldn't live the life he did today. Oh well, I'm sure something is possible, just find the right people I guess. Crazy professor...
