"In the science fiction universe of Star Trek, set several hundred years
in the future, when we are a spacefaring civilization, humanity
encounters a species called the Borg. The Borg are a conglomeration of
species who are assimilated into a collective mind numbering in the
hundreds of billions. All of the borg are connected to each other
through a communications link that allows each of them to share each
others thoughts, though in a manner that erases individuality."
A nice writeup of progress on getting the old space probe working again
with the aid of voluntary global engineering collaboration.
