Something about this feels very Gattaca, doesn’t it? Are we really that far from random DNA searches, or somebody slipping our fingernails or hair to a shady character in a booth? Call me alarmist, but this seems to fit perfectly into what Quentin Schultze says about technology. I am about the farthest thing from a technophobe or Luddite, but neither am I one of those utopia technoprophets who says that technology=progress=social advancement=moral improvement. I can think of very little about this that will help us “understand the human journey.”
The novelist in me sees quite a story in the implications of genography. Maybe you’ll be able to buy it on Amazon in a year or two.
