Genetic Crossroads
April 16th, 2000

"[W]e can easily imagine an arms race developing
over GNR [genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics]
technologies, as it did with the NBC [nuclear,
chemical, and biological] technologies in the 20th
century….This time…we aren't in a war…we are
driven, instead, by our habits, our desires, our
economic system, and our competitive need to know."

--Bill Joy, Chief Scientist and co-founder, Sun
Microsystems, "Why the Future Doesn't Need Us,"
Wired, April 2000 (see below)
