Barbalet: I was looking through your list of funders on your website and as part of your cirriculum vitae and there's an amazing list of potential funders for future artifical life research from there. For someone who would be looking folks like Brig Klyce and the Greatful Dead as well as Sun Microsystems and Digital Equipment Corporation, IBM...I mean, in terms of your funders and how you've talked about artificial life in ways that would appeal to them, can you give an overview of how to create artificial life which is immediately fundable?
