in thread Bluetooth people presence detector :)

Well to be honest they could do this with mobile phones without bluetooth and possibly more reliably: I had a conversation with a senior IT guy at a large UK retailer about using GSM picocells in the stores to do just this - the advantage here is the phone actively registers with the cell rather than being "discovered".

[erix]: I think we'll have to scratch some Neandertal DNA from somewhere and give it a try :)
[holli]: erix: there wouldn't be enough time for that and you'd need a 100% effective extinction event in order to start completely over. but intelligence, who can say there wasn't an intelligent (read: self concious problem solving) dinosaur species?
[shmem]: holli: perhaps even better, less accumulated trauma upon them
[james28909]: its very possible. what wouldt that imply though?
[davido]: The caveman baby in a modern elementary school would succumb to something my kids are immune to, in about the first three days of school, however.
[holli]: accumulated trauma? as in genetic memory?
[erix]: ( or get the Neandertal DNA reconstructed from bits of our own DNA. )
[shmem]: holli, as in genetic memory / social memory
[erix]: heh, it's Neanderthal not -tal, I see now
