Drew Endy vs. Jim Thomas: Synthetic Biology Debate

Bioengineer Drew Endy is the leading enabler of open-source biotechnology. Technology activist Jim Thomas is the leading critic of biotech, based with the ETC Group in Ottawa. Synthetic biology is swarming ahead all over the world, at a self-accelerating pace far greater than Moore's Law, with a range of impacts far greater than genetically engineered food crops. Endy and Thomas debate the question: Is synthetic biology reckless or wise from the perspective of "the long now?"
