Whither Paul Allen?

I can't decide how I feel about Seattle, and if this Wired News article is any indication, I'm not alone. I still begrudge him his billion dollars worth of stadiums, but I actually think the South Lake Union plan is a good one. Though Seattle does lag behind other biotech hot-spots, the UW is emerging as a major research hub and should be throwing off a lot of private sector innovation.

Lord knows we need to diversify away from software (read: Microsoft). It's kind of ironic that Allen might help us to do that.
