This week, scientists will gather in Washington, D.C., for an annual meeting devoted to gene therapy—a long-struggling field that has clawed its way back to respectability with a string ofpromising results in small clinical trials.
A so-called nitrogen-vacancy defect sensor provides superb image resolution of minute phenomena
“We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us.” - John Culkin (based on Marshall McLuhan’s ideas) Something big is happening in design and engineering. For all of human history, we have created tools that help us do what we want to do — faster, better, cheaper. But we have always had to direct those tools; tell them exactly what to do for us to achieve our goals. This hasn’t changed from the time of stone tools (which we had to wield with our hands) to modern digital design tools (which we wield with the... read more
