"In order to create an array of photovoltaic cells on the paper, five layers of material need to be deposited onto the same sheet of paper in successive passes, using a mask (also made of paper) to form the patterns of cells on the surface. And the process has to take place in a vacuum chamber. The basic process is essentially the same as the one used to make the silvery lining in your bag of potato chips: a vapor-deposition process that can be carried out inexpensively on a vast commercial scale."
You can also see a direct link to a video of the researchers folding the material into a paper airplane connected to a meter, without a drop in voltage.
Yeah, I guess I should be clear. I absolutely believe that most failures in healthcare are systems issues. I would never want a nurse to be prosecuted for making a mistake. I just read this story as "a nurse deliberately bypassed a safety feature, resulting in the death of a patient." You're absolutely right that even then, it could be a training issue, or a workload issue, or a combination of factors. I shouldn't be too quick to judge.
In many cases it comes down to the resourcefulness of the nurse. I have heard of at least one case of a nurse who gave an enteral feeding intravenously. The connections were incompatible. Her solution was to attach the two ends together and keep them in place with surgical tape.
I hope she was fired and prosecuted, but somehow I suspect otherwise.

So you oppose patents, then? Or do you like mommy-granted monopolies, and just start crying when the other children try to get your monopoly taken away?
Blame CmdrTaco for that -- the document and the summary both state it's not the real IETF. (It was submitted to the RFC editor for consideration as the April Fools' RFC, but rejected.)
