    An interesting talk here from Martin J Blaser MD concerning the possibilities of personalised medicine through microbiome manipulation and the difficulties that antibiotics can cause:

    Oh hell, they started with "invisible things" and "scary" about our own microbiology. Very professional.

    But watching further, quite informative..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
