Sean hasn't posted to the forum in 6 days. Is this the quiet before the storm? We'll hopefully learn a lot this coming week, with a jury update and also some technical specifications being released. It will be interesting to track how Steorn's news spreads out over the Internet, just like their initial Economist Ad and also their January Press Release.
We had some really great replies to The Czech Dream Theory post. I figured I should let Sean have a say in this debate. I personally think this is a more plausible theory then a scam or the idea that they are just measuring things wrong. Sean posted this message back in November 2006:
Hi Folks,It is very clear in this message that Steorn doesn't benefit from the documentary, which is strange. You'd think they might just say "All profits go to charity" or something. I was thinking today, who knows of any other startups with revolutionary technology (Google, EEStor, etc) who actually hired a film crew to document their progress?
Just to be clear, Steorn have funded the documentary but own no rights to it at all (editorial or otherwise), so if it is ever shown or if it happens to be a big hit there will be no financial reward for Steorn.
