Ok, how about a situational awareness when the open source GMO construct developed in a garage and chucked down the toilet starts being taken up by bacteria in the water? Is this a fun thing to be part of and an awesome future? I suppose it depends what happens. If it just poddles along doing not much or if it causes disease or the breakdown of systems that we depend on will matter a lot. It was funny presentation but what is it trying to achieve? A culture where humans of all kinds flourish, and so does the non-human world we depend on? How is it that games appear? Are we stuck in a boys bedroom with battles and games?Or is it about making sure we don't lose the 21 century equivalent of Thermopolyae? Isn't that to stop destroying the climate? To create a culture that limits stupid showing off behaviour that neglects the whole (no matter how beautifully mapped? Or have I missed the point?
