A tip of the hat to the democratic hackers of Texas.
Meanwhile the House has done other cool stuff. Nanotech is a wonderful, wonderful idea. I place it in the realm of pervasive technology; t3k that becomes so integrated into the world that it becomes indistiguishable from it. Some people probably hate that plan, but I think it's great.
