Neil Young, Blu-Ray and norovirus

Earlier this week, Neil Young unveiled his long-awaited Archive project on Blu-Ray Disc at the Sun Microsystems JavaOne conference in San Francisco.

Yesterday, San Francisco public health officials warned of an outbreak of norovirus that has sickened several people who were attending or working at conferences at the Moscone Center between April 30 and May 8, 2008.

As Caroline McCarthy noted in her story,

"To clarify, this is a virus that makes you barf and gives you diarrhea. It’s not the kind of virus that sends Viagra-pitching e-mails to all your friends or treats you to a Rick Astley sing-along every time you turn on your computer."
