    I like the idea, plus Senators like to have some "Plums" to hand out, so the committee needs at least 100 members (of whom about 10 would be active) from the top echelon of IT, media, academy...and freelancers interested in the topic...

    And ALL of them collecting HIGH remuneration, including the non participatory members!! Perhaps the "Messiah" could be on it too, and his wife Mary Magdalane. And His Kenyan family as well. Typical Sotero Idea.
