Virtual project at Intel Pittsburgh:
"Researchers at the Intel Research Pittsburgh laboratory in Oakland [have] a project they call Internet Suspend/Resume. By taking advantage of the Internet, distributed file systems and a concept called virtual machines, Internet Suspend/Resume allows a user to stop, or suspend, work on one computer and then move to another computer, perhaps at home, or even across the country, and instantly resume that work." Seems similar in structure to VMware Ace, without the corporate IT emphasis. (Thanks again, Roland

Tidal Flow To Power New York City
: "In the third stage of a project which started in January 2003, Verdant Power
, a small energy company, will install six electricity turbines into New York's East River. These turbines will only deliver 200 kilowatts of power. This will be the world's first farm of tide-powered turbines
, according to Nature
. And the company already plans to populate the tidal basin with several other hundred turbine units in the years to come, with a goal of 5 to 10 installed megawatts within three years. The next step will be to install other farms in the US and in developing countries. The company plans to be present in ten sites by 2007. However, it will still be a very small company in the energy business, with a projected revenue of $37 million in 2007." More details: Instream Energy Generation Technology
