Ja! A perfect example is something I have been wanting to write about in
book length for some time, the M-Brain. Robert Bradbury is gone now, and
all I can say is that he did a lot of the ground work with his wildly
imaginative brain. I worked out the orbit mechanics and did the math on
some of the thermal stuff. He never accepted my conclusions on the second
part, so now if I write, I credit him with the idea, then immediately go off
on a path he rejected.
The ExI list is a great cauldron in which to cook a witch's brew of notions.
I dump my ideas here first and best.
