DT2 TED Talk: Are we ready for neo-evolution?

TED Talk: Are we ready for neo-evolution? 

Medical ethicist Harvey Fineberg shows us three paths forward for the ever-evolving human species: to stop evolving completely, to evolve naturally — or to control the next steps of human evolution, using genetic modification, to make ourselves smarter, faster, better. Neo-evolution is within our grasp. What will we do with it?

Harvey Fineberg studies medical decisionmaking — from how we roll out new medical technology, to how we cope with new illnesses and threatened epidemics.

These group discussions meet in the homes of our members.  Bring your favorite adult beverages and your curiosity.  Bringing food is optional.  

Topics for DT2 will usually be based on a influential book, documentary or TED Talk.

    I know Trina would appreciate that. I haven't decided on a dish yet. Usually when I'm indecisive about food I default to tacos.

    Shall I bring the traditional chicken salad and rolls? or should I strive for PB Fudge?
