Esther Dyson on the Personal Genome Project and the Genographic video clips

Esther Dyson talks with Charlie Rose about sharing her genome through the Personal Genome Project here on the Personal Genome blog. She doesn’t think that it is really so scary after all to share her genome with the world! She makes a really good point that environment is always going to be more important than genetics (for example your health insurance company will always want to know if you smoke!).

And interestingly, she unabashedly points out that yes indeed, the U.S.A. will lose it’s top dog status in the future world unless we find some respect for science toward the end of the video.

Further down the same page on the Personal Genome blog is the video clip of Dr. Spencer Wells discusses the National Geographic Genographic on the Colbert Report.
