Doug Vining MindBullet Starts Urban Legend

I was told on Saturday night by a diabetic acquaintance that he had heard from a friend of his that someone had died in China from a computer virus. This friend swore blind that it was true, he heard it on the radio, but my acquaintance was not convinced. He was very relieved to hear that it was a MindBullet, and that it was set in 2022 and had not happened last week.

We're all excited by the prospect of customization and personalization - but this is ridiculous! Customised viruses??

Anton Musgrave Upgradeable humans are just around the corner

We will soon all be ale to upgrade our 'software' to a better version if Kurzweil is right. Shall we ask politicians to be the first to be upgraded - the worlds sure needs better leaders! Seriously, the implications, opportunities and consequences will be profound - especially as the cost plummets over time.

Doug Vining Computer virus transmitted by DNA

Years ago - 13 years to be specific, I wrote a MindBullet about a computer virus making the leap to a biological system, and infecting a human. Well, scientists have already demonstrated how one part of that loop could be accomplished. They edited a strand of DNA, coding it with malware that infected the machine designed to decode DNA!

DNA is just software, after all...
