grow microscopic electrical wires in water, and
soon hope to be plugging into living cells.
Kevin D. Hermanson and colleagues from the
University of Delaware created self-assembling, self-
repairing conductive wires -- a micrometre in
diameter and 5 mm in length -- by suspending gold
particles in water between two electrodes."
You can measure a programmer's perspective by noting his attitude on
the continuing viability of FORTRAN.
