«Breeding TR4 resistance into the Cavendish using conventional methods isn’t possible because the variety is sterile and propagated by cloning. So the only way to save the Cavendish may be to tweak its genome, says Randy Ploetz, a plant pathologist at the University of Florida in Homestead. The variety accounts for 99% of global banana shipments.»

Okay, I am *really* liking this book. It took a bit for me to get into, but it's a really good read.

One of the arguments for "intelligent design" takes as an example a simple banana, and explains how it's just the right size for eating, the right color to easily spot it, easy to peel with human hands, etc. — and that it all can't be just a coincidence. Someone could point out that we evolved the eyes and hands for the banana, and not the other way around. But that would be a mistake. I will instead point out that the modern banana was indeed designed by humans. Behold the wild one (a banana for scale).

I think that one of the most harmful myths around computers is the one saying that you have to be smart to program one. It scares a lot of great people, and attracts a lot of people who are not so great, and only come for the bragging rights.
Using (including programming) computers does not require above-average intelligence. Most programmers I've met are in fact incredibly stupid most of the time. And it's fine, it all works somehow.
