You're not good enough!

Abstract:
Joel Garreau: We are at a turning point in history. For millenniums our technologies fire, clothes, agriculture, cities, space travel have been aimed outward at modifying our environment. Now, for the first time, our technologies are increasingly aimed inward at altering our minds, memories, metabolisms, personalities and progeny.

This is not some science fiction future. Such innovations are in the labs and hitting the market on our watch. Inexorable increases in ingenuity are opening vistas, especially in what we may call GRIN genetic, robotic, information and nano technologies.

(Ed.'s note: to learn more about possible nanotech-enabled futures and what is being done to propare for them, check out the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology and the Responsible Nanotechnology blog.)
