Nah... as you know I think I have sketched a software solution to this
problem already, and that we can have it implemented & tested and learning
away in 2-10 years depending on funding...

So I guess the issue is NOT that I think the problem is harder than you do
;) I guess I would have liked you to say more in your book about the reason
*why* it's hard, and strategies that might be taken to solve it.

But then, it's only one brief book and that wasn't its aim.... And if you'd
said all that in there, there'd be less left for the Novamente book when
it's finally done ;)
