Australian University to Create Real Life Town of 'Eureka'SEureka happens to be one of my favorite shows on TV, and the fact that the University of Queensland plans to build a nerd nest similar to the fictional stronghold makes me very happy. Especially since they're not tied up with that meddling Department of Defense. The "multibillion-dollar brain city" on the western outskirts of Brisbane will be dedicated to science and technology, while housing about 10,000 people—with the hopes that 4,500 of those residents will be some of the world's best scientists. The project is still in the proposal stage, as the university is still entertaining bids, and they expect the project to take up to 15 years to complete. And speaking of residents, while he may not be one of the brightest, I'd like to endorse Jack Carter for town sheriff. [Courier Mail via Slashdot]
