Interesting. Hmmmmm. So, is this kind of like helping out the little guy?

I've known about DARPA for many years now. There is one thing you can be absolutely 1000% certain of: Helping out the "little guy"...is NOT part of the program. But they have been quite effective is helping create the means with which to spy on and kill the little guy. At that they have been quite effective and successful.

Of course I must have this DARPA confused with this DARPA
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
http://www.darpa.mil/

We're not talking about the same place right? Are we? (please tell me I have them confused and the name is a coincidence)

Beautiful creation, Mr. Yang, however its time that its turned over to people who can handle the next level.

Hey, I worked for DARPA! Best bang for buck of any government spending program, bar none! Reputation tainted by Bush, Poindexter and Total Information Awareness program.

DARPA + best "bang" for the buck = the irony of the phrasing is just...gorgeous.

Oh please. So much technology came out of DARPA, it's not funny. This internet thingy, for example. That item has literally changed the world. Tyler's proposal would have been impossible twenty years ago. VLSI technology, the computer mouse, AI software - all were created at DARPA, or by DARPA grants to outside firms. They probably waste a lot of money (what government agency doesn't?), and they have a long list of failures as well, but overall, they have created things that have benefited everyone's lives.

Huh? Computer mouse was Xerox, AI software has been around much longer (LISA anyone?) and as for the internet thingy, well the TCP/IP protocols were started by founding from DARPA to a small group of Stanford graduates, but with the Unix operating system University research is what really drove and propelled the "internet thingy" - the first true TCP/IP network WAS NOT military owned.

And besides DARPA is now just ARPA, and if you really want to see what nice things these guys get up to try HAARP on for size.

On the financials side, I think this new DARPA could become big enough to take on GS - would love to see distributed analysis p0wning the big hegemons

Sounds a lot like an automated valuation model for the mortgage brokers..... Just look at the results at Fannie Mae.... DARPA wants your input, so DARPA can suck all of the water out of the lake.

1121 my original upper target - minis have a gap from 1104 to 1109 that may need filling - watch the upper trendline on SPX RSI for possible reversal point - follow the daily indicators on your fav index, they are the only things that have not lied all the way up. The IH&S played out to the number (luckily). The dollar is key as well.
