George Takei krijgt komeet
Wetenschappers hebben deze week een komeet vernoemd naar de Star Trek-acteur George Takei. De asteroïde zweeft ergens tussen Mars en Jupiter en heet officieel 7307 Takei.
Takei, die de rol van Hikaru Sulu vertolkte in de originele Star Trek tv-serie, verklaarde, "Ik ben nu een hemellichaam. De eer kwam als een donderslag bij heldere hemel, net als een komeet."
Het projectiel was al in 1994 ontdekt door twee Japanse astronomen. Ze wilden het destijds al naar hun held vernoemen, maar kregen daar tot deze week geen toestemming voor. Sindsdien heette de komeet 1994 GT9.

When a website sttras out being free.. sooner or later there is the issue of having to figure out a way to make it pay without upsetting all the members who have been accustomed to it always being free.. and will continue to insist on it being free.So.. you have to make money other ways, and in Facebook's case because they invited investors in.. they now HAVE to make money!Real money.They won't get it by insisting members pay. That's a given. Won't ever happen.They've tried really hard by taking the aggregate data generated to make an income from.. but have received a lot of flak from privacy concerned members, and while valuable they haven't marketed that data very effectively.Their advertising on pages really sucks because although (in my case) I may fit the demographics.. I am NOT interested in finding 20yo bimbos who are only interested in men over 50!This advertising is improving by reading my private posting and connections to other Facebookers, but that is all too obvious to me and loses its effectiveness.Facebook's problem from the beginning is that they didn't have a clear plan to monetize the site.. and now they're playing catch-up.. and no matter how they try.. someone is going to complain about it.
That insight's just what I've been looknig for. Thanks!
