Beware of indexing robots

Greetings.

Jewish date:  29 Nisan 5770 (Parashath Thazira‘-Meṣora‘).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Blame Somebody Else Day, National Robotics Week, Jefferson’s Birthday.

Note:  In observance of Blame Somebody Else Day, I blame all the people that get complained about in the worthy causes of the day.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Heart Disease and Stroke. You’re the Cure.”, “MoveOn.org Political Action: Obama's Supreme Court Pick”, “Equal Pay for Equal Work! - The Petition Site”, and “Take Action: TrueMajority.org:  Bring back the WPA!”

Today’s weird thing is Gååglebot AJAX Controlled Roomba Robot For Indexing, a project which aims to have a modified robot vacuum-cleaner keep track of what stuff is lying around a house.  (Maybe this is an attempt to avoid tagging everything with RFID tags.)  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
