You may ask yourself, what does this have to do with either politics or pop culture. Hell, it's science, what does it have to do with anything?

I dunno, it's interesting.

Anyhow, it seems that biology and other sciences are becoming increasingly intermixed as living organisms are being re-tooled to serve as material components in things like lights, computers, and buildings. In many instances of sci-fi, humans primarily use mechanical, inorgnic items as a matter of preferance (There are a multitude of exceptions, naturally, considering the sci fi is such a broad field) while it's an alien race that makes use of creepy biological technology to augument themselves and their things. Just an observation. Anyhow, we're far from anything of the kind, but the benifits of organic technology are not to be underestimated.

It seems like it ould be better for the environment (Barring bio-waste and the like), it'd probably be cheaper, and it would involve less exploitation of our natural resources in the form of ripping up the earth and pulling shit out. Naturally, the republicans will put forth token amounts of money before they realize the implications, and then will try to screw it over. I'm just guessing anyhow.

Everything is speculation, of course, and I'm getting a bit ahead of myself and current technology, but we've been doing this shit for years and I think it's neat.
