Quote of the Week: Doctorow on Copying and Life

“… as Cory Doctorow at BoingBoing put it:

Three or four billion years ago, by some process that we don’t understand, molecules began to copy themselves. We are the distant descendants of those early copyists – copying is in our genes. We have a word for things that don’t copy: ‘dead’.”
