How long until it hits the lab?

The first story regards a new anti-microbial paper, what you would use that for is not entirely clear, but they do suggest that medical records could be kept sterile. The papers are coated with a silver based anti-microbial. How long until this generates paper-resistant Staph. However I could see this as being useful for lab books (mine has suffered spillage in the past), or toilet paper. Imagine the possibilities... The second story regards a guy from Finland who wrote an entire novel in "text message" style. How long until someone writes a paper like that. Where is this world going? It's only a matter of time until we find text message printed on underwear, oh the humanity....
