No it's not, it's awesome!
As some people have already mentioned, it's better not to reply if you don't have anything to contribute to the conversation.
Replying useless stuff like that just annoys people.


on topic:
I love the attitude and way of thinking of Bill stone! I had already seen an extremely interesting video about a talk of his on TED (google it, it's my favorite site on the net! seriously.)
My admiration of him has only grown since I saw that video, I really recommend it.

I'm glad to read the newest chapter of his adventures on pop sci. tnx

a cool quote of him:
“As far as human endeavor,” Stone says, “DepthX is the coolest thing we’ve ever done, period.”

Braun the guy with the V2 rocket?   That guy was a creative genius as well.
BUT the people I most admire( in order )  are Leonardo da Vinci , Nikola Tesla, and Thomas Edison.

*GASP*

Have you ever read a book of his theories, plans , and inventions? They are incredibly inspiring  especially at his time and with his technology , he was a fricken genius .

did you know he designed ( and perhaps built)  automatons?

I was kidding dude, hence the "d="
I've only read his military inventions x3 as that is what I'm interested in :P
But yup, he has been the greatest designer/builder/engineer/thinker genius IMO
