How many mushrooms are required for 100g of gold? Will this imbalance other economic factor - price, availability etc?

I recall years ago reading an article on using a similar process to pull contaminated radioactive metals out of the ground.  Seems quite a number of plants require metals to grow properly.

As much as the forced hype on IoT, I still feel TNBT (The next big thing) is bioelectronics.  Since plants can pull the carbon out of CO2 to build structure, a method similar to FDM 3D printing using organics, should be able to lay down layers of Graphine or even possibly the diamond matrix.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
