How these Silicon Valley companies are disrupting the meat industry with 
their 'meatless meat'
San Francisco firms say they're helping to solve environmental problems 
but critics say we're 'guinea pigs'

It sizzles and oozes, the way a burger should. Nadiv Geiger, a chef at 
Vina Enoteca in Palo Alto, Calif., says he has to coat his pan with a 
little more oil than normal for this burger, but other than that it cooks 
like a normal patty. But this patty is made of ingredients a cow would 
happily eat.

The creators of the Impossible Burger say the future is in his pan: a 
world free of factory farming. But critics fear he's frying up a 
potentially dangerous Frankenburger, one among a growing number of 
high-tech, genetically modified meatless meat products coming out of 
Silicon Valley labs. [...]

Way beyond the Yves Ground Round soy-based "ground meat" that I cook with 
right now...

"Books are an amazing thing. Anyone who thinks of them as a escape from reality or as something you should get your nose out of and go outside and
play, as merely a distraction, or an amusement, or a waste of time, is dead wrong. Books are the most important, the most powerful, the most
beautiful thing humans have ever created. ... Books can reach out across space and time and language and culture and customs, gender, and age, and
even death and speak to someone they never met, to someone who wasn't even born when they were written, and give them help, and advice, and
companionship and consolation." -- Connie Willis
