    I'm here at Juilliard listening to his lecture about the predictive-memory model for the brain (really the neocortex).

    James Watson, the Nobel laureate and co-discoverer of the DNA introduced him.

    When he's finished, what should I ask him about the Treo?

    Ask him why the 'P' key sticks on the 650.

    Ask him is he aware of the bittersweet ill-will toward PalmOne in the enthusiast community.

    Seriously.

    And use your Treo to record the conversation.

    James Watson was not the co-discoverer of DNA. He may have been part of the pair that deciphered it's structure, but he didn't find it first.

    Ask him why you posted this thread.

    Just tell him you admire his ability to stand up, much less speak, after losing $10 million over the past few hours.

    Watson and Crick discovered the double helical structure to be more precise

    I meant to add the words "structure of" before DNA.

    During the lecture, he mentioned that he was starting a new company that would build AI devices utilizing his prediction-memory model. The first project will involve artificial vision. I questioned him about his views on the origin of consciousness in the brain. He felt that it was part of the functioning of trillions of synapses, and that machines could eventually achieve this. Maybe some time in the future there'll be a Treo HAL. I'll post the pix tomorrow.

    Neither Watson or Crick did the actual work- they left the heavy lifting (seriously, did you ever see the x-ray apparatus that was used?) to a woman.

    Should have asked him how many people were actually going to do the "work" work on this next project while he shuttles around the world like royalty (appearance riders to rival a rock star from what I'm told).
