Of course you've all read about the nobel in med to RNAi. Probably it is deserved? Seems just a bit premature as the mechanism/function is not nailed down. However the discovery certainly is profound.
You've probably read about it on nature news or some other science source. You know that slashdot sucks when almost ALL the comments on this post were non scientific. I think this made me finally appreciate the clear superiority of digg.com. Digg actually has good user comments.
Of course Slashdot and Digg pale in comparison to bayblabs authority.
