Late last year, scientists with the OPERA collaboration in Gran Sasso, Italy reported an incredible finding: neutrinos that appeared to be moving faster than the speed of light. The news spread at a barely slower pace, fascinating the public. One thing everyone knows is that a very famous physicist named Albert Einstein once said that nothing should travel faster than light speed. In February, the OPERA researchers found a couple small problems with their experimental set-up, calling into question the original faster-than-light neutrino result. The event highlighted the difficulty of science at the edge of the unknown -- and neutrinos are especially tricky.

“Fire up your laptop”!?!?!? I’ve lost count of how many times I have heard this expression and remain baffled by how end-users have become accustomed to and accept the fact that it can take minutes, many minutes in some cases, before a user begins to productively start work. This is nuts! I can’t even begin to fathom how much productivity time is lost or abandoned altogether simply due to how long it takes a system to “fire up.” I get that I may want to warm up my car on a cold morning, but the majority of times I like to get in it, buckle up, turn the key, and go.
