"Even the addition of an element of computer use is insufficient to render it valid," the judge wrote.

Modern Medicine: Where Health Technology Stands in 2015 — "The Living, Breathing 'Human on a Chip' Is Coming." Now there's a headline.

I first read about it in an article on Gawker about the druggie e-bazaar Silk Road, which required payment in Bitcoin because of its semi-anonymity.

Thinking About Brains — In the highly-anticipated and very adorable-looking Pixar movie " Inside Out," due out later this year, the brain looks like a spaceship cockpit, memories look like glowing multicolored orbs, and the subconscious looks like a psychedelic server farm.
