This morning I’m giving a talk on convergent technologies within the context of brain sciences here at the imec facility in Leuven. I just went through my slides and came to the late conclusion that convergence means quite different things to various scientific consituencies…in the neuroengineering field, it might mean deploying nanomaterial electrodes to make electrophysiological measurements. In the signal transduction world, it might mean the cross-talk between the cyclic AMP and Protein Kinase C pathways. So context is all important.
In the meantime, I note from afar, that the Nationals split a double-header with the Los Angeles Dodgers–their magic number for a wildcard spot is now down to one game.
