Hey Leon. Thanks for the info. Neat! Easy to use, solves health problems, and designed at U of T. What more could one ask for?

The future is going to be amazing. I sometimes wish I could live another healthy hundred years so I could see it. Then sometimes, I'm glad I won't.

Digression in the news today - Two sides to this U of T algorithm they've developed.

Then sometimes, I'm glad I won't.

Why won't FounDit? Gallops of science are not unknown. The scientists have started freezing bodies of the person dying with untreatable diseases or of other conditions only to de-freeze 'em when treatment is found. I wish they make you live for another two hundred years to see the wonders of science. The latest news of that of printing a heart with 3-D laser printer using some advanced type of biological tissue.

For those "gray beards" among us, there is a message displayed on a computer screen the very first time SUDO is invoked on a particular machine: "With great power comes great responsibility." There are various stories about the origin of it, yet the message is clear: be careful, be very careful!

Sometimes it seems like it would be excellent to continue without end, and sometimes it seems right that a story has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

My point exactly! We will be healthy but less creative, I'd say. No, I'm not that old to brag how everything was better when i was a kid. I like this technology/bioinformatic era but also I think we would leave more spce for trials and errors. People are relying too much on devices. They don't know anybody's phone number. They don't know how to go anywhere without GPS. They don't enjoy in concerts or sports, because they are too busy making selfies...
