As long as they have funding they don't need a PR machine. That's a good thing, actually. I'm happy to wait until they have something definitive to announce. Well, not exactly "happy" but I can live with it. :)

To error is human... and I'm very human.

IIRC one of the objectives of this forum a couple of years ago was to get Polywell further funding - it now has that, whether or not we had anything to do with it. So, for the time being, they don't really need us, and for reasons discussed at length, their sponsors probably don't want them talking about the work right now.

Although a lot of us seem impatient and frustrated, in a way couldn't we say mission accomplished?

Sure, let's discuss Focus Fusion and some of the other ideas at greater length if they give us data. My approach has always been that we should be pursuing several parallel fusion development efforts, rather than putting all our eggs in one basket with billions going to ITER but nothing going to anything else. Funding in the range of $10-20 million every couple of years seems to be enough to push Polywell, FRCs etc. along to produce valuable data.

I'm not too concerned about EMC not publishing right now - but I'd like to see the WB-7, WB-8 and whatever else test data opened up within a few years.
