Neat concept, article was pretty cursory though. I’d love to know more about how they might actually perform their mission


On the one hand something like this is fantastic. People who have inherited diabetes, celiac disease or a genetic propensity for obesity will have enormous gains in quality of life and life expectancy. On the other hand. Chefs. Gastronomy. A whole pursuit of life, culture and self expression is in danger of becoming something of a bygone era.


Dude is full of it. He’s a billionaire that’s riding the coattails of a tech sale windfall in the late late 90s / early 2000s and being a terrible business partner to his partners and screwing them out of tons of money. Nothing he’s done since has been successful. And he pays his employees like shit. Typical rich asshole. The tech he uses at Viome is just licensed from the US govt and isn’t that game changing or the govt wouldn’t have let him have it… so there is nothing he did or is doing that is unique/proprietary. Plus, other companies are looking at your poop now too. Forgive me if I ignore whatever comes out of this blowhard’s mouth.


AI dictating what happens in my body? No thanks! I would rather die of cancer
