Microsoft and Teleportation??
My friend David Kirkpatrick writes the best weekly column on technology issues that I've ever read. You can read him at http://www.fortune.com/fortune/fastforward
In his most recent issue, he quotes Rick Rashid, who runs Microsoft Research saying, "We have researchers here who have done work in teleportation and things like that," he says. "Say in 20 or 30 years Microsoft invents the teleporter. Given the reputation we have, the headline would be, 'Microsoft Copies Again!'"
Well every time anyone asks me what I would love to invest in, I always answer "teleportation". It's the ultimate destructive technology. No more planes, trains, buses, cars, phones, hotels........
So the fact that Microsoft is really spending money on teleportation excites me. I want to learn more.
