Don't believe the hype that Google founder Sergey Brin is seeking to "open source" research on Parkinson's. Should you try to contribute, the very first thing you'll find is that Brin has disabled comments on his blog. "While I would like to receive and post many insightful comments," he writes in a disclaimer above the comment box, "realistically I am unlikely to be able to read through all of them and may accept very few or none at all." So far he's accepted none at all. Look, Sergey, if you're serious about curing Parkinson's, talk to the Accelerated Cure Project for multiple sclerosis. It's the same idea: Supersmart engineer/entrepreneur is diagnosed with disease, decides to put his skills to work rather than wait around for a miracle. Everyone else, feel free to post your comments here.
