Does the future of food lie in its past – or inside a tank of liquid nitrogen? Also: how anti-social can you be on a social network?
I wish Dubner would acknowledge that Myhrvold and his company are widely viewed as being the biggest patent trolls there are. If these accusations are true, then he's a mass extortionist, and should be arrested, or at least shunned. At the very least, Dubner should acknowledge these accusations- particularly because this is an economics podcast. The fact that Myrhvold has appeared on the show several times, and only described in almost glowing terms, is a little creepy, and undermines the integrity of the show.
