Tempest for Eliza

Der Computer-Monitor als Mittelwellensender. Tempest for Eliza: "All electronic devices send out eletromagnetic waves. so does your monitor. and your monitor does it all the time. and at very high frequencies. high enough for your short wave AM radio. all you have to do is display the 'correct' image on your screen and your monitor will emit the 'right' signals. Tempest for Eliza displays pictures on your screen. one for each note in the song."

Der Manager und der Ingenieur

Gefunden in einem thematisch verwandten Slashdot -Artikel: "A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, 'Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?'
The man below says, 'Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field. ' 'You must be an engineer', says the balloonist. 'I am', replies the man. 'How did you know?' 'Well', says the balloonist, 'everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's of no use to anyone.'

The man below says, 'You must be in management.' 'I am', replies the balloonist, 'but how did you know?' 'Well', says the man, 'you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault.'"
