    "The New York Times has a story today about Autonomic Computing, which is
    described as "a biological metaphor suggesting a systemic approach to
    attaining a higher level of automation in computing;" and they published a
    paper (pdf) on the topic. Apparently there are already some universities
    signed up on Autonomic Computing projects, more info was available on the
    website and in the nyt article. It also appeared in CNET."

    Autonomic Computing is a new initiative from IBM. It's not all that new,
    however. The idea is to build systems that, modeled after the autonomic
    nervous system, take care of all the details, have an immune system, and so
    forth. Not all that far from Doug's evolving OHS/DKR.

    It's not all that new an idea, but IBM is pushing it.
