Google: It's alive! Microbiologists use bacteria to cook up logo...

Grow Google debuted on YouTube Monday the 31st of January. Today is Thursday and it has been viewed 45K times since the two microbiologists, Professor Edward Johnson and his graduate student Clayton Wright agreed to help Dr. Johnson's son produce a video for the Google Demo Slam competition. While the video and the intent of the demoslam competition is cool, the true potential of this video lies in how it illustrates the potential of the cyber classroom where one of the classic concepts of microbiology, exponential growth is brought literally to life through something as simple as making the creating a living version of the Google logo. Check out the video, it will bring a smile to your day and hopefully inspire you to make use of the cyber classroom.
