GeekSpeak – Is it time for a global food reset? Join the discussion May 6th at 12pm SLT


The way in which food plants are grown is changing.  DNA engineering, hydroculture, recreating ideal environments inside giant containers; all these techniques will soon be widespread.  Food plants are, right now, quite different from the way they were in earlier centuries.  What will they be like in 100 years?

Will all countries grow all the plants that they need when they don’t have to rely on natural conditions?  We will gain food security but lose world trade.  Will countries that now export food suffer?  How will the global economy change?  Will we soon see a worldwide food surplus?

Come to GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss our food.  Bring your own carrots, and all your farmer friends!

GeekSpeak – Will we all be Perfect in the future? Join the discussion Saturday, April 9th at 12pm SLT

With DNA editing we can improve the way our bodies function.  With robotic enhancements, we will be able to do things no human can do.  Where will all these new powers take us?

Is it possible to be perfect?  Or will there always be trade-offs?  Should some enhancements be against the law?  Who will decide for the children? 

Will humanity split into different species?  The rich will be enhanced and the poor will remain normal perhaps?  Will we see eugenics wars?

Join us in GeekSpeak at noon SLT on Saturday to explore what it will mean to be more than human.  Bring all your humans.  And robots are welcome.

GeekSpeak – Biohacking- Join the discussion Sat, August 25th at 12pm SLT

GeekSpeak – biohacking

We are all used to DNA testing; people want to know who their father is, who their ancestors were, which dog has been pooping on their lawn.  But what happens when DNA testing moves on to DNA hacking?

Now people can hack DNA in private labs, in garden sheds.  We will see strawberries that taste like apples, dogs that glow in the dark, mosquitoes that inject poison, wasps that destroy crops.

How far will it go?  Will we see bees that record everything they see, children who glow in the dark or who are green and photosynthesise, miniature polar bears, women with snakes for hair?

Everything could be possible.  Join us in GeekSpeak.  Bring a blood sample.
