As much as I like Google: aren't they shamelessly copying Microsoft here? Or is this just "convergent evolution" (20 years or so later than Microsoft)? Sumif? Nested functions? Colored tabs? Wow...

Drake equation may need a tweak...

Touching story of scientists and parents working together to advance clinical research into a rare disease. Also, an example of how approval bodies need to more strongly differentiate approval criteria and standards according to the type of disease.

Worth reading. Although they don't mention citations; if something is being cited hundreds of times, it rarely (Jan-Hendrik Schön...) will be totally invalid... Anyway, the nice thing about science is that it produces tools and applications that WORK (in the long run) - if they don't, the underlying science will quickly be discredited. Science itself being evolutionary, there is bound to be the occasional error with the trial.... I guess that's why the article came out in the Economist, not Nature... Cheers, BK
