Sounds very ironic to me, though…”to coax”, “and voila”, the initial rhetoric question…do you think this is a sober view on Java?

This, I think, is a thing that could be twisted according to one’s needs. Sadly. Using high tech to engage swarms [intellingent swarming, eh?] like U2 are doing to have an impact on politics and economics etc. is just legitimate. Whatever one engages, there is always someone who’ll financially benefit as the ‘fifth wheel’ in the party, no?
