Links

Links are the lifeblood of the internet, but they are diminishing as people rely more and more on monopolies like Google and Facebook to find things. I know people not too much younger than me, who don't even know how to use URLs.

This is tragically depressing; without Links, we all become serfs to content aggregators, and we become unable to discover new ideas and content without intermediation.

So, I'm going to continue the old ways, and link to things I find interesting in a clear and easily discovered / navigated way. I strongly urge you to do the same. I'm even open to joining some kind of new-style webring, with the right pitch. The below links are categorised, for your convenience.

People who I generally think are excellent, and who deserve a look for the great stuff they do. :)

DIYbio, Biohacking, Awesome Biotech

I've been active in DIYbio for years, so I've made a lot of cool friends that do stunning stuff in biotech. I was a mentor and all-round-helper during SynbioAxlr8r (now IndieBio), and I subsequently directed IndieBio EU 2015/2016. So, safe to say that I've met lots of commendable people working on living technologies.
