The ZDNet article from Reuters did not include a link,
but said that the work was written up in Nature on `Thursday,'
which must mean a Thurs.22.June.2000 issue of Nature.

The ZDNet article quoted H. Sebastian Seung and
Rahul Sarpeshkar, both of MIT, so a look into Nature
and a search for their names should lead to the paper.
