I thought so. I remember chatting with you in kind of a mall or something like that in St.Louis. As I get older, the mind is the first thing to go. We only go a brief chance to chat in Tucson so glad to hear you are going to DC. We have another great conference planned. I look forward to catching up with you.

How are you doing? Nice to see you on FOHBOH. Hope all is well with you and I look forward to chatting more in the future. What was your first CHART conference? I want to say Nashville but I am thinking it may have been earlier.

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
