Since WIRED Magazine hit newsstands in 1993, it has pioneered the way we think about technology – complicating discussions about the Internet by exploring its impact on politics and culture. Now WIRED co-founder Jane Metcalfe is tackling how the neobiological revolution will impact the next generation through her new publication: Neo.Life.
Metcalfe sits down with our Webby Podcast host David-Michel Davies to discuss the benefits of biotechnology, concerns surrounding the security of genomic data, and how we can edit genomes craft a brighter future for humanit.
“ It really is about the future of our species. We happen to be here at this extraordinary point in time where you can literally edit the human germ line.”
