not so personal genomics

So my idea of requesting sponsorship for getting my 23andme results processed and sharing the results was already carried out successfully by some one named Andrew Meyer. Follow his progress on his blog .  

Mike Arrington also has a nice post about his decision to give it a try and his fears about what it might tell him (and other people) about himself.  I think one of the reasons he's been such a successful blogger is how incredibly quotable his writing is.  To sum up why, despite the list of fears he discusses, he went ahead and sent in his spit, he says:

"The future is coming, and I want to know"

My sentiments exactly.
