A nice biology research program would be linking various portions of mouse brains, trying to get the mice to think in parallel, with the very long term goal of figuring out how with humans too.

Yep. Committees are smarter than lone visionaries. Every time.

Your comment blew my snark-o-meter right off the chart, but the company I work for subscribes your statement with the same kind of passionate zeal that zombie feels for brains.

Which is to say, a lot.

We are smarter than me, but none of us is as dumb as all of us.
