Mostly about NIF, though...

Self sustaining reactions? Sounds like the author is stuck on the ignition requirements for Tokamaks and laser fusion. I'm not certain about DPF, FRC, of General fusion- if ignition is a requirement, but it certainly is not required for the Polywell. I would guess that the DPF and General Fusion approach depend much on inertial confinement, but as they are pulsed machines I don't know if the brief confinement is assisted by significant ignition heating, it is in laser confinement.

On the other hand, he did manage to be dimly aware that there were efforts besides the two large cash Gov't sponsored boondoggles.

Is General Fusion still seeking to prove net gain this year? I remember them mentioning stability issues in their spheromak balls..
