The Low-Coste Innovation Blog welcomes YOU

Welcome to the digital era of biology (and to this modest blog I started in early 2005).

To cure many diseases, like cancer or cystic fibrosis, we will need to target genes (mutations, for ex.), not organs! I am convinced that the future of replacement medicine (organ transplant) is genomics (the science of the human genome). In 10 years we will be replacing (modifying) genes; not organs!

After low-cost airlines (Ryanair, Easyjet ...) comes "low-cost" participatory medicine. Some of my readers have recently christened this long-lasting, clumsy attempt at e-writing of mine "THE LOW-COSTE INNOVATION BLOG". My name's Catherine Coste. I've earned myself three MIT digital diplomas: 7.00x, 7.28x1 and 7QBWx. Instructor of 7.00x: Eric Lander PhD.

My motto: Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Where You Are Tolerated.

I love Genomics. Would you rather donate your data, or... your vital organs?

How Hard Is Solve MIT Working To Change the World?

"Solving, not whining". Well, this is not even whining, this is ranting:

Generally speaking, trying to bust silos between Boston/Cambridge MA and California -- Harvard VS Stanford -- seems to be a full-time job. Almighty lobbies, cf. Volkswagen, Aaron Swartz (an MIT student), Big Pharma scandal(s), will win against intelligent people in the US (California, NY, Boston) if the latter are keeping among themselves, inside of their social and professional "silo" and competing against each other. By doing so, we are not leaving our comfort zone and auto-congratulating meetings will not change the world. Let's not forget that apart from California, NY & Boston, the USA is a less developed country, mostly made of uneducated, poor and armed people, ready to believe lobby crap. Geneticist J. Craig Venter says half of America is scientifically illiterate (and armed). When you are not educated, you think that genomics is evil. 

Will Solve MIT be live streaming their working sessions? If you do not educate, you will not change the world.
