Since Project Mentifex (mindmaker) purports to be a public-domain
confluence of neuroscience, robotics and artificial intelligence,
you now have the opportunity to say, "Include me out." Thanks to
the marvelous phenomenon of webcrawlers ferreting out and listing
all mentions of the word "Mentifex" on any Web page of your work,
consider how you may stand to gain if you display a line such as,
"Rossum's Universal Robots and Project Mentifex are not related."
The recent graduates excited at the prospect of working with you;
the agencies wishing to place longshot bets on potential winners;
the aging philanthropists eager to engage in "kanban" largesse --
all these radars scanning for a blip on the horizon will find YOU
when they conduct their periodic Web search for news of Mentifex.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
