Thanks to John Mauldin I've become convinced that the next big boom will be in biotech. Stories like this only further support this hypothesis. If you've ever wished for more hours in a day then your dream might come true - and sooner than you think. A lot of people like to say "we'll never again create something as innovative as electricity or indoor plumbing. Things like Facebook don't even come close." And yes Facebook doesn't come close, but what about reducing your need to sleep by 75%? That sounds pretty revolutionary to me. If 1/3 of your life is spent asleep then it would be the equivalent of living 19 years longer.
