CD47 is a protein involved with cell apoptosis and proliferation, among other things. Cancer cells have essentially hid behind it when avoiding cell death. Scientists at Stanford have found a way to use anti-CD47 antibodies to allow the cancerous cells to be eaten by macrophages.

Q. What practical difference would you say that Linux has made "in the real world"?

The biggest impact of Linux has often been in areas that most users aren't necessarily even aware of. For example, in pure numbers, Android is likely the use of Linux that has the most people actually interacting with it directly every day (at some point Google was saying that they had half a million Android activations every day), yet almost nobody really thinks of it as being based on a Linux kernel. Sure, you can go into the settings menu and see the kernel version, but how many users really care?

And the thing is, users generally shouldn't care. They really shouldn't care what operating system they are running, they should care about the work they get done. The operating system should not only be invisible, but pretty much irrelevant.

Larry Page highlights below what I've felt in 2012: users have lost in the battles between the big tech companies.

Rare Interview with Google's Larry Page on Fortune
Google is still at 1 percent of where we should be

I don't know if this is unique at this time in this industry, but there are companies that are clearly competing with each other [Google, Apple (AAPL) and Amazon], with completely different business models.
I actually view that as a shame when you think about it that way. All the big technology companies are big because they did something great. I'd like to see more cooperation on the user side. The Internet was made in universities and it was designed to interoperate. And as we've commercialized it, we've added more of an island-like approach to it, which I think is a somewhat a shame for users.

Thanks +Thomas Baekdal
