                      Jameson Dungan is by day a computer technician in the Norfolk School District, and by night he runs his very own biotech lab inspired by the DIY ethos of hacker spaces. Assembled by a new wave of low cost bio-science parts and his own open source equipment, it is a "sandbox" for his own curiosity and passion. Jameson is not looking to make a killing by patenting a new drug or medical device, he's one of many in a new generation of citizen scientists who look at discovery as a pursuit that is its own reward. See the Biopunk Manifesto to learn more about this nascent movement: http://maradydd.livejournal.com/496085.html
