I don’t want to bid for this dinner

NYT reports that Knome plans to offer its personal gene-sequencing service to the highest bidder in an eBay auction set to begin on Friday and continue for 10 days. This will include also a private dinner with George Church one of the cofounders and active supporters of every tech based; so finally the unholy alliance of ethical claims and commercial interests is clearer now, yea, yea.
