I like this.

"Just as fortunes were made by the designers and manufacturers of the humble mouse mat after the launch of the Apple Macintosh, we are likely to see consumer products exponentially increasing. It is difficult for us now to fully appreciate the number of tiny ICT devices that populate our cars, kitchen goods and even children's toys; but the time is ripe for a new generation of biotech entrepreneurs to look for novel ways to create consumer products using biological advancements."

Nice thoughtful article on the future of making things with biology.

"These results add another dimension to the evolution of resistance and suggest that the low antibiotic concentrations found in many natural environments are important for enrichment and maintenance of resistance in bacterial populations."

I get a feeling that antibiotics will soon become as archaic as blood-letting. The sooner we deal with the consequences that any amount of the current selection of antibiotics is just generating super-bugs, the sooner we can get off traditional antibiotics. I'm really hopeful of new ways to controls microorganisms that would be a healthier mix (rather than the usual single target that can be evolved around) of other microorganisms, highly specific chemicals, and targeted designed nucleic acids.

But, then again, what do I know? What do you think of the future of antibiotics?

"Senator Scott Brown yesterday condemned a rule change at the state’s Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission that beer makers say could harm 25 craft brewers in Massachusetts, and even put some smaller companies out of business. The ABCC issued the revised rule, which has yet to be finalized, earlier this week. It would require the roughly two dozen local brewers operating under a so-called farmer-brewery license to grow at least half of the hops or grains they use to make beer, or get them from a domestic source."

I think the ABCC has their heart in the right place - support local grain growers. But I'm not sure how this will impact brewers, as I don't think Massachusetts is a big grain paradise, say, like some mid-west state.

One thought might be to create a "Mostly Mass" sort of label identifying brews that use mostly local ingredients. I think that's more in line with how folks have been promoting local farmers than some blanket un-competitive license change.

What do you think?

"Where others see barroom taps crowded with beer options, Chris Lohring sees opportunity brewing."

A nice article on the state of breweries in the region, the business, and the entrepreneurs. Quite exciting.

As for me, I'll stick to small time 5-gal brewing.

Brewing good beer isn't something unique to Ireland, Germany, or the mountains of Vermont. In fact, there are quite a few craft breweries in Massachusetts that find an appreciative customer base both inside and beyond the borders of the Bay State.

Here are 10 breweries and brewpubs that produce their suds in the state, as well as the most popular beers they produce.

"A new wave of niche breweries is the most noteworthy since the mid-1990s. New England is playing catch-up with California and other parts of the country already experiencing their own craft beer boomlets."

Take a look at the inner workings of a brewery.

"The digital dog tag, which Watertown-based Sociometric Solutions calls the "sociometric badge," has a built-in microphone that can gauge how much you talk (versus how much you listen); an accelerometer that can tell how much you sit versus how much you move around; and an infrared sensor that can tell when you're facing other people wearing the badges."
