Garage Biotech: The Book
I haven't read it yet, but there's a new book on the whole "garage biotech" field, which I've blogged about hereand here. Biopunk looks to be a survey of the whole movement; I hope to go through it shortly.
I'm still on the "let a thousand flowers bloom" side of this issue, myself, but it's certainly not without its worries. But this is the world we've got - where these things are possible, and getting more possible all the time - and we're going to have to make the best of it. Trying to stuff it back down will, I think, only increase the proportion of harmful lunatics who try it.
By the way, since that's an Amazon link, I should note that I do get a cut from them whenever someone buys through a link on the site, and not just from the particular item ordered. I've never had a tip jar on the site, and I never plan to, but the Amazon affiliate program does provide some useful book-buying money around here at no cost to the readership.
