The story of the spin-offs of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ["Woods Hole Offers Its Scientists Freedom To Launch Businesses," The Scientist, Feb. 4, 1991, page 1] is one that has never been published as far as I know, even though the spin-off process at Woods Hole has been going on for about 30 years. Congratulations on a well-organized, thoughtful, and interesting piece of journalism.
