    This year because of the massive time difference, I'm going to be a video.

    I really wanted to go and had it all planned but owing to the ill health of a family member I won't be able to make it. I would like to have met you guys.

    Counting the days myself! We were able to network with scientists and other fellow wheelers quite well when we went to Chicago.

    Among many interesting things I liked the opinions of Andy Grove:

    ...Finally, I visit someone who's even more familiar with how game-changing industries are born: Andy Grove...

    ...For close to two hours, Grove argues passionately about how the FDA is enabling predatory offshore industries by impeding progress and the many reasons financiers want no part of stem cells. "VCs aren't interested because it's a shitty business," he says. Big Pharma? Forget it. CIRM? "There are gleaming fucking buildings everywhere. That wasn't necessary." When I press him to be constructive, he wearily offers one possible solution. Rather than courting billionaires to put their names on buildings, we need a system of targeted philanthropy in which the 99% can sponsor the individual stem cell lines that matter to them.

    ....Grove wants an economic model for stem cell research...
