A Meeting of the Minds

If you’re interested, here’s a link to a document from the Edge Foundation, a group designed to promote the discussion of intellectual pursuits. The document is a summary (including video links) of a casual meeting between some fantastic scientific minds (Craig Venter, Freeman Dyson, Robert Shapiro, Dimitar Sasselov, and Seth Lloyd) which took place in late August.

Although Dr. Church doesn’t discuss the Personal Genome Project, his brief discussion about our past and our future is very interesting.  There’s also a summary of the meeting from Gregory T. Huang, an invited journalist.  I see that one of the invited guests was Ting Wu, a researcher at Harvard who has initiated the pgEd (personal genetics education project).

I have to say, I am so tired of the United States Postal Service always losing my invitations.
