Chinese Researchers Store Data Using Bacteria
The world has gone germ and bacterial crazy. Each time I go to my kids’ school, I see all the teachers making the kids use hand sanitizer all the time. I made it through the late 70’s and early 80’s of my youth without washing my hands once outside the tub or shower.
