Rice genome FAQ

gosh, we really let the thread go dormant, there has been a deluge of reporting on GMOs lately...no way to archive every link I guess, seems like nearly every day I see something new on the subject. Still, let's see if we can't get the thread moving again.

Hi Mike,

Amazing it's been 10 years since someone posted here with GMO being such an important topic. Strange.

I see Roundup Ready Alfalfa in the news,
but you're right, the thread never took.

I don't think there are an awful lot of active
members on SI--maybe a hundred? A lot less than
ten years ago.

And we have learned that pointing to something
interesting isn't the same thing as learning
about it. I know that I was just a dumb kid ten years
ago--now I'd like to think I'm a little more sober and
thoughtful. Not that I study any one thing in any
great detail--I just know now to keep most of my
thoughts to myself.

Wow... didn't know that, but HAVE noticed that a lot of "tech" folks that REALLY know what they're talking about have left... BIOTECH for example, but ALSO the QCOM wonks and all. Too bad.

And I agree with you as keeping thoughts to self... too much arguing going on over dogmatic junk on SI these dayz. Wonderin if it's worth posting much any more.

I enjoy posting and getting feedback--although I pretty much
confine it to the personal computer thread now. As far as
the biotech guys, the core group of about half a dozen is
still here, I havn't been monitoring those threads--and
I don't expect to be speculating in biotech again, but
it was a great experience when the market was hot.

Getting back to GMOs, here are fast growing salmon
nytimes.com

I don't mind saying that fast growing salmon make
me uneasy--but in general GMO crops do not. I'll leave
it there--I'm just not informed or educated well enough to
say anything one way or the other about GMOs. I certainly
do eat plenty of them--I'm not really into the orgainic
free range 'sustainable' movement.
