>etc.......... = gets lots of great data which then has to be synthesised -

Dear Julie,

great, great, great! Let's celebrate this FUN!! !!!

Most people I know of, would have written 'horror!!'. They don't know what
'synthesise' means but know how it feels to be in a bomb.

"Never ever collect data if you don't know how to process them." -
   "But how should I know how to process them before I have seen them?" -
"You will be burried in an information grave yard." -
   "That's what a machine is, when it has data but no process, besides, I have my
     processes, although I cannot write them down in C++." -
He returns with a box full of computer print out. "Here is data for you! Now show me your processes." -
   "Sorry, my ON-button is disabled. Seems to be a serious lack of interest and
     curiosity." -
"I thought so. Do you know that you are dangerous? You collect data that interests you and then you process them subjectively. Don't count on me when you try to present the projections of your intents." -
   "That's ok with me. Should I really come up with something to present, it will be
    good to have carefully scrutinizing sceptics around. But I am really wondering
    what you are doing in the meanwhile."
"Serious work!" (He is in charge of evaluating training and development ;-) )

We could perform this sketch on a subversive, anti-machinistic SDIF
(synthesize data is fun) party, what do you think?

Liebe Gruesse,
