Compilation of links about my brother Michael’s story on Amazon’s $23million book about flies

Since I think it is pretty cool, I am compiling links to news stories and blog posts about my brother’s recent posting on his “It is not junk” blog about Amazon’s $23,698,655.93 book about flies.  Basically, he tracked some sort of automated computer pricing feedback loop between Amazon and another site that led eventually to a very very very very high price for a book about Drosophila.

And the post has now been picked up by all sorts of places.  So I am compiling a list of some of the stories here.

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
