Nothing like dynamiting a commonplace metaphor & getting some interesting research in the bargain. To be fair, E. Coli & other organisms have spent millions of years in competition to survive, while we've only been building computers for about 60-odd years. Still though, perhaps this will help software/hardware architects to create more hardy systems that don't fail at key moments - like when I was writing that term paper in undergrad . . .
