@stabbypete I’ve been reading a ton about it, listening to podcasts. Biohacking and CRISPR are going to change things in crazy ways. I wrote a thing about gene drive. THAT is nuts.
If you follow the world of biohacking in gene editing, you’ve undoubtedly heard of CRISPR and Kevin Esvelt. Kevin is an associate professor at MIT…
This is very interesting. Thanks for writing it. Your example of the Steves is also entertaining. You must have encountered a bad Steve along the way…
Everyone knows a bad Steve. Everyone.
@luke we’re good, but we’re not that good. We’re not able to create life out of nothing. I think we’d need to in order to be able to change our energy source and chemical makeup.
@luke we can’t change our biological functions to suit ourselves to extreme climate change. We still need water. Love Waterworld though. We could have gills??!! I heart CRISPR, I think it’s super cool. I have no doubt biohacking is going… Read more»
@luke There’s therapeutic value in it, which is terribly cool. There’s also literally a mechanism that could wipe out selective living things. Don’t want cows anymore? Gone. Ducks? Boom. Humans? Ehhhh. Alright.
Ok so I’m not a scientist (God bless them) but I am fascinated by CRISPR tech. What do you know about it? Do you think it’s the end of human civilization? Or is everyone that wants blue eyes gonna get… Read more»
