Bigelow's space habitat program

I had been thinking about making a brief comment that Robert Bigelow's research program has a fun loving aspect which is somewhat (and perhaps understandably) missing in government sponsored space research - although I think a six foot high version of the 'magnetic sculpture' in Genesis One has a good change of appearing in the foyer of his first space hotel.
Now it seems he is accelerating the program, and the Fly your Stuff offer is going to be cut to just one mission - Genesis II, and we don't yet know what will happen to his other ideas. I hope whatever plans he has doesn't cause the program to lose it's initial spark of creativity.
