Rock Weekly: No, there won’t be a doctor shortage


December 9, 2013

Just in time for the new year, we moved into our new digs in Mission Bay, with even more space for co-working and community events.

In the ongoing saga re:personal genomics, 23andMe stopped offering health-focused gene reports for new spit kit sales and has reframed itself on its website as “the largest DNA ancestry service in the world”.  Also last week, processed more signups in 2 days than the entire month of October but still suffered from significant errors, and Vinod Khosla provided clarification regarding his remarks that technology will replace doctors.
