Why the future of innovation is simulation
Forbes
When the Thomas Edison was asked about success amidst failure, he said that "If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward." It also becomes clear why he regarded success as "1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration." Failing 10,000 times is a physical and mental undertaking that far exceeds most people's endurance. Today, however, a new breed of innovators are outsourcing failure to computer simulations and it's changing everything we thought we knew about business strategy.

Making your medical records safer
ABC News
The Health Insurance and Medical Privacy Act, or HIPAA, made your electronic medical records a lot safer. As welcome as these changes are, we need to go further. It is time for a federal law requiring encryption of any database that contains personally identifying information (PII). Despite the lunacy now emanating from our nation's capital, despite the insane games of brinksmanship in Washington, I truly do believe the failure to encrypt personally identifiable information is of critical importance to the well being of Americans, and it's an issue we need to deal with right now.

Without test tubes, 3 win nobel in chemistry
The New York Times
Chemistry, meet computer science. This year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three researchers for work that did not involve test tubes or lab coats. Instead, they explored the world of molecules virtually, with computers. Such numerical simulations enable the closer study of complex reactions like photosynthesis and combustion, as well as the design of new drugs.
