It has been awhile since I had a "tingly" moment of excitement about how the 
present and future are converging, but I had one today!  Dr. Elias Zerhouni, the
head of the National Institute of Health, explained how how they had a pretty 
dang progressive (considering the Bush administration I would add) plan for 
investing in research across the nation.  This included a special emphasis for 
genome related work.  With enthusiasm he spoke about how over the coming decade 
he expects medical imaging, RNA silencing, and even medical nanotech to be the 
"big next things."  

When he actually said the words, "medical nanotech" I was surprised, and when he
brought up "maintaining and rebuilding the body with it" I was shocked.  I felt
like I had suddenly shifted into a new reality and would be getting a letter 
telling me the future was soon to arrive.   

Best wishes,

John Grigg
