I found that Cringely finally owns and did some looking around. All I came up with was some guy named Benjamin Higginbotham. The first guest for season 2? A made-up name to throw snoops off? I don't know, but I hope I find out before 2009.

If two out of 3 people chime in that they liked the model, then I'm just going to have to say something.

Well I watched the episodes #1-12, and I have to say that the Anina episode #9 was kind of like the outcome of a game of "one of these is not the same." While I don't want to be negative about her accomplishments, they simply didn't stack up against the others', who frankly were working a lot harder on much more technical issues; a number of them also had the advantage of being in the right time and place for inventing things that are now computing standards. It is a shame that she's one of the two women in the series because she doesn't lend any credence that women can do just as much science as men, which of course is true.

So #9 made me not want to come back for #10 or any others, until I heard from a friend that #11 was actually quite amazing, and that made me go back to #10.

Also I didn't know there was a #13, and I'll have to watch it now, because I could have sworn there was some unwritten rule that all seasons should consist of a number of episodes which is a factor or product of 12, rather than a prime around 12.
