Brave New Biotech World

I know this has been like The Next Big Thing for a long time, but it’s sort of starting to happen. From Kottke:

A company called Lifeforce has received FDA approval to store white blood cells for people as a “back-up copy of your immune system.” The idea is that those pre-diseased cells could be reproduced in the lab and infused back into your body when needed to fight off infection or deal with the aftermath of chemotherapy.

Soon there are going to be little bits of us stored everywhere. I’m serious! I know! It’s weird!

This is such a good idea.

For no reason, I read the subject line as "Brave New Be-otch World."

Yeah, that's a different post.

Which Matt is writing.

(Ha! Now I really do want Matt to write a post that somehow fits that headline... come on Thompson!)
