Well since Google and the other search engines do not want companies to sell text links, and with Apollo soon to come out and the mobile internet on the rise I think we will start to see alot of advertisiong companies switching to Flash based or AJAX based ads in order not to upset the search engines and lose the traffic from them. Not to say that other people in companies now and in the future will not sell text links ads but why would you want to upset any of the search engines by selling text link ads if your relying on them to bring you traffic and money. Me and a couple of friends are thinking of putting together a company called Flashtising which would sell Flash ads for high traffic websites at first but then plan to offer lower traffic sites advertising oppurtunities as we progress.The thing that makes Apollo so great is that even if the server is down on our end the ads can keep running on the clients end one thing I had hoped for when Macromedia was around and every once and awhile heard a rumor about it coming out, but when Adobe bought them out I knew it was going to be sometime before it was released so I put plans on the backburner for quite sometime but thanks to the great people over at Adobe it looks like I will be able to start another company. Any web designers out there with Flash skills looking for a job please contact me A.S.A.P I looking to hire four of five designers and you can work from home just need a web camera.

‘Nano-Piezotronics’ — New Class of Electronic Components from PhysOrg.com
Researchers have taken advantage of the unique coupled semiconducting and piezoelectric properties of zinc oxide nanowires to create a new class of electronic components and devices that could provide the foundation for a broad range of new applications. […]
Indian, US scientists discuss nano computing at Agra
“Scores of eminent scientists from India and the US discussed several key issues in the field of nano computing at the Indo-US Shared Vision Workshop on soft, quantum and nano computing being held here.
The workshop, held at the Dayalbagh Educational Institute, began Friday with a talk by Nikhil Ranjan Pal, professor at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. He spoke on ‘Fuzzy Rule Based Systems: Applications, Design Issues, Solutions and Open Problems: Where do we stand?’.
Pal, an authority in the area of Fuzzy Systems, is a Fellow at the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), US, and the Indian National Academy of Engineering. He is currently a visiting fellow in Taiwan as well.
He stressed how effective the tool of Fuzzy Logic was in a variety of applications ranging from satellite image processing to medical image processing for the detection of cancer in the young. While covering a wide range of issues in the field, he also explained them with great lucidity.
G. Ramnath, professor at the Rennsselaer Polytechnic Institute, US, talked on ‘Transmuting Nanostructures for Nanocomputing Technologies’.
The world of computing is set to be revolutionized with nano devices (nano = 10-9 m) wherein a few atoms would be manipulated to do computational functions to produce powerful computers that would make the computers of today appear pedestrian in comparison.
Ramnath detailed the work being done by developing carbon nanotube architectures to produce nanodevice architectures of the future.
‘Towards understanding the origin of genetic languages’ was the topic of Apoorva Patel, professor at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
Lov K. Grover of Bell Labs, US, who chaired the session, said that Patel had made the presentation at his institute earlier and had been rated as one of the five most important talks ever given at Bell Labs.
In his talk, Patel explained how nature processes information in creating species with the lowest amount of information processing in the most optimal manner.
He provided pointers for answering the most complicated questions like ‘How did I come into being?’, ‘How does nature evolve life?’ and ‘What is Life?’.
Bringing together difficult concepts from Biology and Computer Science, Patel gave very convincing answers to some of these difficult questions on life”
I read this story off the wire you can read the entire story by clicking on the headline link was wondering if anyone out there has the speech in any format would love to hear more.

“A 15-nanometer-thick porous silicon membrane could lead to microfluidics filters and make protein purification and blood dialysis more efficient.
A porous silicon membrane that is a few nanometers thick can quickly filter liquids and separate molecules that are very close in size, researchers at the University of Rochester report in this week’s Nature. The new membrane could lead to efficient protein purification for use in research and drug discovery. It could also act roughly 10 times faster than current membranes used for blood dialysis, the artificial purification of blood. In addition, the membrane could be employed as a filter to separate molecules in microfluidics devices used to study DNA and proteins and as a substrate for growing neurological stem cells.”
Read the entire story by clicking on the headline but I just wanted to point out this could lead to other things like being able to bring down the levels of a patients HIV or Hepatitis virus in the blood by being able to filter the blood thru a purifier.
