Robert Kinney - the man, prior to his position of Chief Executive of General Mills, both touted and popularized ......... fish sticks. Long live Mrs. Paul and the Gloucester Fisherman :)
Yes! Ex-Genesis and "Sledgehammer" singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel is working with a few IT people to develop a way for us to communicate with animals via computers.
