yea, i figured that, given that Protein Sciences has been doing this kind of 
thing for years. I gather however that this is the first time flu vaccine has 
been made this way.

My point was that the technology was being pitched as new to VCs and health 
admin officials. the whole thing about shiny vats with lots of computers and 
very few people. that's the "new". 

and the "old" is technology or businesses that have lost high-profit potential 
for venture capital.
