Help - 23andme

Hey everyone,

thanks so much for the wishes, gifts and cards. Charlie looks like he’s having fun on planet earth, mum is amazing and dad is simply very happy.

For those I haven’t seen or spoken, all the best in 2008. Professionally, my focus will be to contribute to creating social solutions based on technology - but more about what I am up to later.

Combining both of the above (creative technology and Charlie) bring me to a service live in Europe since a couple of days: www.23andme.com. I’ll just quote that: “ 23andMe, Inc. is a privately-held company dedicated to helping individuals understand their own genetic information using recent advances in DNA analysis technologies and web-based interactive tools. 23andMe enables individuals to gain deeper insights into personal ancestry, genealogy and inherited traits. 23andMe was founded in April 2006 by Linda Avey and Anne Wojcicki.” I initially discovered because Google invested (Anne W is Sergej Brin’s wife), but this is another huge step, even if the barriers have not been established yet.

Also, I am trying to make an overview and insight in entrepreneurial web, media and/or technology start-ups, specifically from Belgium. Could you help me via sending a mail to me [bart.becks at gmail.com] if you have seen or contributed to any of the above? 

thanks a lot in advance,bart
