Hi All,

I'd been meaning to send this link around (in case it's not already  
been distributed to the list):
	http://www.technologyreview.com/video/index.aspx

You'll see Tim B-L's interview near the top of the list.  Obviously,  
most on this list "get it" - but I thought it was useful to hear TBL  
communicate his vision of some of the specific gains he sees SemWeb  
Tech providing to the HCLS space, and the immediate value that  
functionality can provide to society.

There is also a very interesting piece from Susan Lundquist et al  
(director of the Whitehead Institute at MIT) on high-throughput  
techniques for uncovering pharmaceutical agents that might act either  
to prevent or reverse protein mis-folding.  In additional to being a  
rapidly growing dataset ripe for RDF expression, it's a scientific  
topic of direct importance to the HCLS IG demo Use Cases.
