Lab-grown kidneys work in animals - BBC News
Scientists say they are a step closer to growing fully functioning replacement kidneys, after promising results in animals. // shared economic interest (public good) = investing in research when it seems possible/likely/plausible is not good enough for moonshot projects (time when only investment by for-profit ventures come into play), thus need private-public partnerships like uni(s) + gov grants + joint venture = shared risk. // investing in science has ROI. even if it does not and will not produce a gadget after the first peer reviews paper.

Jaron Lanier: "Wem gehört die Zukunft?" | Kulturjournal | NDR - YouTube
only those who have the date, profit from the data. middle class jobs will be lost as software and automation more and more takes over other peoples jobs. 3D printing, transportation, - user data should cost money - it is valuable. Companies will appear that offer people money to share their data, their online lives, in return for money. Less people around the globe needed to produce/make stuff people around the world need. means less menial, task oriented jobs to go around. thus the future is in software, problem solving and creativity. in the next 5 years, Amazon will have only roboters in its warehouses. no people packing the packages.
