Say hello to GenomeBoy

Misha Angrist, one of the first ten participants in the Personal Genome Project (the so-called PGP-10), has started a blog ““. Great blog name. He explains the provenance:

When I told a friend that I was going to be one of the first ten subjects in George Church’s Personal Genome Project (PGP), she said, “Why you? What makes you so special, Genome Boy?” I thought that was funny. And so here it is. In the spirit of good sportsmanship, I will answer to”Genome Boy,” but don’t expect me to don the tights, mask and cape…at least until they’re ready.

With that comment, I feel nearly 100% confident that I will see a picture of Misha in tights before I die, I’m almost sure of it! I’m also sure that the blog content will be smart and funny. The title of his very first post references Spinal Tap, the hilarious mockumentary . (For the uninitiated: “Hello, Cleveland!” video segment from the film on YouTube)

    I have no shame, it’s true, but I don’t want to scare the children…
