Question for media members obsessed with Theranos

What concerns you most?

1. VCs losing money that they can afford to lose? Accredited investors who are certainly big boys and can take care of themselves?

2. Elizabeth Holmes getting attention she doesn’t deserve? (who cares)

3. People getting ineffective blood tests for a short while? In no way could their ineffectiveness be kept a secret for long.

4. You think medicine is too lightly regulated?

Take a look at this clip below and realize that biology is hard and if we make a gigantic deal out of every failure we’ll get more heavy handed regulation and drive away people who actually can solve health problems.
