Girls Out Loud Episode 05: Synthetic Blood and Robots, aka Minority Report

by on July 11th, 2010

Cristina and Maya are fascinated by DARPA’s initiative to farm synthetic blood, which has been achieved by a biotech company in Ohio, as well as research being done by robotics students around the world trying to make teachers out of robots (brilliant!). The girls puzzle over Facebook activation numbers for the past month falling of a cliff from 7.8M to just 320,000 new accounts in the US for the month! Google Games plus Zynga, and Reddit Gold also make the list of topics the ladies break down in this episode. [Oh, and pardon the occasional echo. Technical difficulties… :(… ]
