Holy shit we are living in the future.
BioBrick parts are DNA sequences which conform to a restriction-enzyme assembly standard. These Lego-like building blocks are used to design and assemble synthetic biological circuits, which would then be incorporated into living cells such as Escherichia coli cells to construct new biological systems. Examples of BioBrick parts include promoters, ribosomal binding sites (RBS), coding sequences and terminators.(via Soren)

Is Docker ready for production? Feedbacks of a 2 weeks hands on
I have to agree with this assessment — there are a lot of loose ends still for production use of Docker in a SOA stack environment:
From my point of view, Docker is probably the best thing I’ve seen in ages to automate a build. It allows to pre build and reuse shared dependencies, ensuring they’re up to date and reducing your build time. It avoids you to either pollute your Jenkins environment or boot a costly and slow Virtualbox virtual machine using Vagrant. But I don’t feel like it’s production ready in a complex environment, because it adds too much complexity. And I’m not even sure that’s what it was designed for.
