    I'm a bit surprised there hasn't been more discussion about this

    Tim Berners-lee with a NeXT computer at the Olympic opening ceremony, supposedly wrote 'this is for everyone' on it which was transferred to all the LEDs in the seating.

    Altho its likely it was pre-programmed by something else, (it doesn't look as if the monitor was plugged into the cube) imagine if it wasn't. Its pretty fun thinking that the content of however many LEDs at an international event in 2012 would have been input with NeXTSTEP

    Noticed that as well. Thanks for the pic -- looks like it's all cabled up and actually booted up.

    Maybe he hacked together a quick app so he could Tweet. :p
