Digital anamnesis and other crimes [short story] by Marcelo Rinesi

A database is a tool for forgetting; it decays on command, faster than nightmares and more thoroughly than graves.

Biohacking humans is not wise – Josiah Zayner’s “The Odin” - on Buzzfeed by Brian Hanley

I was interviewed by phone before this SynBioBeta conference referenced in the Buzzfeed article, but they didn’t use what I said. I made it crystal clear I thought biohacking humans could be quite dangerous. I told them I stopped communicating technical information to unqualified people several years ago because I realized it encouraged people to do things they weren’t qualified to be involved with. I used some examples with the journalist.

Gattaca, 20 ans après by EMG

S’il est un film qui représente les questions éthiques contemporaines relatives au génie génétique, c’est sans doute Gattaca (Bienvenue à Gattaca en français) d’Andrew Niccol. Sorti en 1997, un an après la naissance de la brebis clonée Dolly, il réapparaît encore régulièrement dans les débats pour sa mise en scène, comme souvent en science-fiction, d’une société techniquement avancée, mais dystopique et inégalitaire.

Trump and the Iron Heel by Rick Searle

Like many others, I am still absorbing the shock of Trump’s victory in the presidential election. For the last month I had been on a holding pattern on the blog in the remote chance the pundits and pollsters had gotten this election terribly wrong. They have. Rather than having elected Hillary Clinton who would have preserved the status quo with all its flaws, but also its protections, a large portion of the electorate has chosen to blow up the system and take a dangerous, potentially dystopian turn.

Skeletal Analysis Suggests Lucy Died After Falling From a Tree by George Dvorsky

The world’s most famous human ancestor, an extinct hominid named Lucy, died after falling from a tall tree, according to scientists. It’s a revelation that points to tree-dwelling behavior in recent evolutionary history, but some scientists aren’t convinced.

Peter Thiel is Right About One Thing by George Dvorsky

Billionaire douchebag Peter Thiel has plenty of crazy ideas, but his commitment to radical life extension isn’t one of them.
