Don't worry about the future, it always arrives soon enough: As you probably
couldn't help noticing, the big story of the day on Monday was the First Step of Human Gene Map Finished
announcement. I thought I heard all there was to this in the deluge that day,
but loonyboi points out a note I missed at first: "It would fit on a
DVD." Wow, that certainly brings new meaning to the concept of Saving
Private Ryan. I am just a caveman, so this view of the future scares me, I'm a
little more comfortable with Jetsons-style innovation, like the car in a
suitcase, or perhaps the Link of the Day that follows...
Link of the Day: LG Electronics'
Internet Digital DIOS Refrigerator. An odd glimpse at the future. What did
George Carlin say? "Nail two things together that have never been attached
to each other before, and some schmuck will buy it from you!" Something
like that. Thanks Jay H. Edson.
Bonus Link: BUYGAMES.COM - The Game Superstore.
Featuring "Quake 3- Arena Elete" for sale. Thanks Travis McPherson. If
their decidedly non-'leet spell-checker is bad, their proofreader is worse, as they
describe the game as "Fueled by a radically modified version of the Unreal
3D engine." Wow!
Story of the Day:
"We Are at a Good Point to Pass This Off", says Genome Scientists (MoonApples.Com). Thanks Louis Chyp Sineni, who points out
it's a bit subtle, but the Jeff Goldblum quotes are worth the price of
admission, and besides, it connects so well to today's OotB.
