>>> Beware! This is from a guy who works on ants - taxa where the individual
is a meaningless little black gizmo that crawls around and the colony is
'the real thing'...  :) jim <<<

Speaking of which, has anyone seen the 11 November issue of "Science News"?
It has an article on robotic ants and how well they can be programmed to
forage.  Fascinating insight into "non-intelligent" group concert behavior.
