PRELIMINARY POST ON CROWDSOURCING

Well, I got an interesting answer to the question, How does soap work?  I got a not really helpful answer to the question How can an airplane fly upside down?  And as for friction, not much help there save to say that it is complicated.  I would still like to really understand how a plane can fly upside down.  I guess friction will remain a mystery.  But on another matter entirely, my general sense was confirmed that no matter what you say on a blog, someone out there will care about it.  In passing I referred to Great Pyrenees, which are utterly hugable dogs, and sure enough one of my readers owns a Great Pyrenees.  It never fails.

Enough of light-hearted posts.  I must try to return to serious stuff.  Maybe the event tomorrow will provoke some deep thoughts.  We shall see.
