Shedding Some Light on the Coming Genomic Revolution

Posted in Aging Services, Agriculture, Cancer, Disruptive Technology, Exponential Executive, Future, Futurist, Genomics, Health Care, History, Impossible, TED Talks

Twenty-two hundred years ago, you needed to work 50 hours to buy an hour of light from a sesame oil lantern. Today, to purchase an hour of an even cleaner and brighter light, it takes the average person about half a second. Such is the nature of technological progress. Yet, I think we can all…

Posted in Energy, Future, Futurist, Health Care, Impossible, Life Science/Pharmaceutical

The think tank known as The Millenium Project has recently published a new report, “The State of the World 2011.” One particular paragraph caught my attention because it reinforces a concept (accelerating change) I’ve been espousing for some time: “The coming biological revolution may change civilization more profoundly than did the industrial or information revolutions.”…
