organic data

Linking to this slashdot article for no other reason than that I find the article & comments an interesting discussion of what the future might hold for what has been called "organic computing."  The concept of junk dna possibly already containing a repository of undecoded data -- possibly, I say -- is an interesting one.  Always already cybernetic organisms? Of course, the big caveat to using bacteria as data storage is mutation -- that "reproduction is inherently error prone."
