Kerry’s acceptance speech left me fairly underwhelmed both in terms of policy and delivery. One ticky-tacky point: I actually got a little bit excited when Kerry started his riff on science, being something of a science-appreciating geek (but hardly knowledgeable about it). But then he said something along the lines of a young president said let’s go to the moon and we did; now we are exploring the stars. Really? With anything more than telescopes? Did I miss something? He followed up on this with saying that we have created a chip the size of our fingernails that can hold all the information contained in a library. Again, really? Why, then, am I still stuck with CDs that hold only 700MB?

Not all that significant in the bigger scheme of things.
