I thni that this could be really used and exploited to show the 
problem with swpat.

Displaying art with electronic displays is easy enough to understand by 
anyone to be able to react (and the fact that this stuff, developped 
by other people is attributed to Bill Gates himself would help to 
raise the interest ... and reactions againt the person who is just *too
rich* in comparison to many other people on earth.

Best regards, and best whishes to all for a very successful new year
