The apotheosis of nerdliness

Another entry in the "Probably only at MIT" category: I saw somebody today working out on a Stairmaster ... while using his laptop, propped on the Stairmaster's "dashboard". Maybe he was inspired by the surfboard laptop. Or he really needed to get some work done, but also wanted to exercise. Or he just thought, in that "independent-thinker"-bucking-social-conventions-way that is endemic here: "Why not ? It's really not that different from reading a magazine or listening to an iPod, it's just a slightly different form factor".

I'm waiting to see somebody soldering together a circuit, or plugging ICs into a breadboard while exercising ...
