Dear NEO.LIFE fans on Medium,
Our first book is coming to life! Neo.Life: 25 Visions for the Future of Our Species will launch on Kickstarter in January. If you like our stories on Medium, you will love this book. NEO.LIFE Editor at Large Brian Bergstein and I are co-editors. Sign up to get an alert when our campaign goes live.
Neo.Life: 25 Visions for the Future of Our Species offers a big-picture perspective on our powerful new biotech tools, and the profound changes they are enabling. This collection of original essays, interviews, art, and science fiction features contributions from trailblazing scientists, innovators, artists, and journalists, including:
- Geneticist and bioengineer George Church
- Inventor and computer scientist Danny Hillis
- Synthetic biologist and biosecurity specialist Megan Palmer
- Artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson
- Sci-fi author and synthetic biology CEO Hannu Rajaniemi
Combined, these pieces paint a picture of the neobiological frontier we’re all heading towards. We deliberately set out to curate positive visions for our future, and the result is neither unreasonably optimistic nor inherently dystopian. It certainly is provocative.
Think of it as a 2020 guide to your future self.
Sign up now and please tell all your friends to sign up, too!
Thank you. 🙏
