Convergence: Google + Terabyte Storage + Personal Genomics = Opportunity

Abstract:
As I always try to do, though, I would encourage you to "jump the curve" and think of what this technology means not in terms of today's technology, but rather what it might imply for tomorrow's. For instance, this month's Wired has an excellent article on the possibility of sequencing the personal genome for $1,000. Storing such information will require a great deal of storage capacity, but this latest IBM advance will make storing your genome seem like child's play. My point is that rather than simply storing YouTube videos on your Google Phone of the future, you will probably also be storing your personal genome. And once this is possible, you will be able to use your phone for far more important things than watching the latest and greatest video, you'll be able to monitor your health with an almost unimagineable level of specificity.
