Development Shock

Abstract:
Mike Treder: "Imagine 20 years ago, before the Internet invaded our lives, how hard it would have been to predict what your children and grandchildren would be facing."

Yes, and imagine 20 years ago, or even 10, reading a column like the one quoted above. In it, Susan Greenfield writes about individuality, alludes to human brain augmentation, and questions the meaning of identity. She is, by the way, a professor of pharmacology at Oxford, director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, and author of Tomorrow's People: How 21st-Century Technology Is Changing the Way We Think and Feel.

Now, imagine 20 years ago, before the Human Genome Project was even begun, seeing a mainstream media series like MSNBC's "Human Evolution at the Crossroads." Oh, yes, 20 years ago there was no MSNBC.
