    This story is quite amusing how they fitted the snails with chips and then are using them to 'transfer' data from one machine to another as part of an art project. It's a big joke about showing how 'snail mail' is really slow and doesn't always get to it's intended destination.

    I had to re-read to make sure I understood what exactly they were trying to accomplish. :p

    Other than NetFlix, I can't even remember the last time I used snail mail for outgoing mail.
