ethics

they're hard

hard to develop

hard to administer

and today

we have so many reasons

to start getting good at

ethics

for example

the hgp-write undertaking

the Human-Genome-Project-write

the plan to

"build and deploy

a fully synthetic genome

in human cell lines

within 10 years"

means we have less than a decade

to sort out the nuanced and unchartered

ethics

of creating the map that could lead

to "artificial" "human" "life"

and those words

immediately become complicated

within the context of this conversation

i'm all in for progress

but only when progress

progresses alongside our

ethics

[of course how we arrive

at determining who gets

to determine our ethics

is a discussion for another day :)]

anyway

this one could be tricky folks
