If you are not magically transported to a “2D bitmap topDown use your left right up and down arrows video conferencing dream world”, try reloading few times. Its a little glitchy but also way more fun for mashups.

The conversation is of course about internal bias of the summit, how the experts try to work with the WHO which has a more bio-conservative agenda. We are looking to see about inclusion of art directors for this human genome redesign project instead of all these ‘health’ meets enhancement donor aesthetics. Is there a species commons instead of simple Ford vrs Mercedes mutant designer babies? And, of course, does GMO human gonad tinkering just cause cancer and other sorts of metabolic havoc to our future genomes with no way back, no way to track the novel disinformation/disease? Beyond off-target germline side effects presenting as pollution ‘of invisible origin’, are the new transgenic semi-humans, are they free living admix generational alteration? Or are they investment portfolios intended to perform extremophile functions?

Having fun watching the sciBroes&Sis and prepare for our vommentary!
Rachel already been mentioned in the Q&A… let’s think of some comments / questions to drop in there too!
here is the link again:

Thanks…so the audience is tiny…only 61 people watching…artists are so overrepresented :wink:

SO let’s meet today for ciritcal viewing, commentary, vommentary and our own session afterwards.
This is LIVE now:

They keep talking about how broad social dialogue and “consensus” has to be reached BEFORE heading on with opening regulations for human germline hacking.
I wonder how long it will take to get us on that symbolic graph!

I am already on the island to chat and discuss.

Adam’s question is on top of the list! Vote us even more up!

Everybody welcome, even without the smoked saussages.

I can get in the island, sadly jitski is not working for me…poor connectivity over mobile.

I think we had some fun times and an interesting alternative parallel events for this!
Now i checked all the recorded videos, and have continued discussions together with Adam during our co-isolation session in RandeLab.

Thanks all for joining!

In the meantime, me and Adam have written to the Royal Society on getting involved in next years summit. Let’s see how they respond…

The full letter is this one:

This will be a fun ride, and let’s do something interesting next year in London!
We should search for some local collaborators for a parallel activity… Asa Calow? Nicola Triscott? Heath Bunting?
