Clayton Bye asked some of his friends in The Write Room Blog who had most influenced their writing. Now some answers.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I was really pleased to talk about my English teacher in seventh grade. One of my memories of her was her reading Poe's Bells. By chance, last night my wife and I went to Poefest, here in Phoenix, AZ. I still enjoy the musicality of his writing.

Study finds a patchwork of genetic variation in the brain

It was once thought that each cell in a person's body possesses the same DNA code and that the particular way the genome is read imparts cell function and defines the individual.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

The complexity of the brain has just become even more difficult to understand. I don't expect we will fully understand neurobiology in my lifetime, which makes it a great topic for my inner geek.

Belgium considering unprecedented law to grant euthanasia for children, dementia patients | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Kenneth Weene's insight:

This is a "BIG" issue worthy of debate. For my part I certainly believe that we should have the right to end our lives if we are competent, and the right to establish that wish for the time after we have lost our mental acuity, but for children--that does seem more difficult.

Health insurance exchange launched despite signs of serious problems | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The site failed some tests, people familiar with the project say, and testing wasn’t done early enough.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

One of the greatest dangers of bureaucracy is the belief that if it is in the middle of doing something, that something must be being done correctly. After all, it there were something wrong, we wouldn't be doing it. My only question is how much waste will go into paying bonuses to those outsource contractors who didn't do the job right the first time.
