The creation of the Predator drone→

Wired:

The guy who figured out how to do exactly that—how to wage war from thousands of miles away with a few clever modifications—was known among his colleagues in Big Safari as the Man With Two Brains, for his freakish intelligence. Without him, Grimes tells me, “it would not have happened.”
An independent contractor who started working on the Predator in 1994, the Man With Two Brains almost never gives interviews. He spoke on condition of strict anonymity. At the beginning of our conversation, which I was allowed to record with a pen and paper only, I was scanned with a small black device, for a wire.

A fascinating read- half of these people sound like characters out of a movie.
