Interesting piece up by Freeman Dyson about the role biotech will play in the upcoming century. Dyson is certainly not the first to suggest that in the coming decades genetic engineering is going to go the way of the PC and find its way into the homes of average people but it’s still fun to read his opinion. Of course the analogy isn’t a perfect one since DIY biotech poses a much greater threat than the home computer does.
