The (F)interesting rise and fall of a blood-analysis technology

The story in short is:

  • A silicon valley start-up promises a technology that is able to do all (240) blood tests with one drop of blood

*The promises go wrong – maybe also because they failed to get a license to roll out in Afghanistan

*A enterprise’s biochemist “commits suicide” in 2013 when he “realized” the fraudulent software/machine (could not find him but deserves the quotes, i think…)

*The initiators are sued, have to pay a little reparations – 9 billions get lost in thin air

The interesting point for me was that this story is being analyzed as a conspiracy although it is actually standard procedere in the business world.  The discussion is an exercise for deceptive language and perverted facts.
