regarding ntap, cree, gmst, and jdsu, i was simply trying to communicate the mood of the gorilla hunters on G & K. Nobody can definitively determine gorillaness because nobody has that kind of authority, so all these things are in flux. There was just a huge argument in thefool about whether QCOM was a gorilla...

read thru the G&K on SI and you'll see where I'm coming up with my thoughts. NTAP's moving in with a software product which may be its root to gorillahood, cree has a lock on the discontonuous innovation of Silicon Carbide, GMST is a gorilla waiting for the tornado to hit, JDSU has hundreds of patents and has been called a gorilla by Mr. Moore, etc.

Now, these things may not be gorillas yet, but there are degrees, and there are maturation cycles, etc.

Regarding CRA, if you believe you can't, under any circumstance, apply gorilla thoughts to biotech, then move on. Of all the biotechs however, an information lodestar which has first mover advantage on entire genomes, from human to fly to whatever, may just be indispensable to the field.

If my looseness re: gorilla definition offends, I most humbly apologize.
