What Does EBM Really Stand For?

If you’re a music fanatic, EBM probably means “electronic body movement”. And that came to my mind when I found this article over on BusinessWeek Online/Bloomberg headlined “Rewiring The Body”. Anyway, for fun I googled “ebm”. Here’s some of the results:

-Electronic Body Music
-Evidence-Based Medicine
-Electronic Business Machines
-Expertise By Manufacturers

Okay, so we have “body” + “medicine” + “business” + “manufacturing”. Implantable mini- generators? Forget Procter & Gamble gadgetizing consumables – the real money is in gadgetizing our bodies. Maybe Ray Kurzweil is on to something – never say die.
