All this talk of speculation and has me revisiting Fortun (2005) arguing for an ethics of promising. "Promising cannot be reduced to either empty hype, or to formal contract, but occupies the uncertain, difficult space in between."

“Consensus among technologists & other elites that a new technology is safe, & that its benefits outweigh its risks, is no guarantee of broader societal acceptance.” Moreover, it doesn’t guarantee that the technology is actually safe or that the benefits outweigh its risks.

This is a very poor headline: "Scientists Release Controversial Genetically Modified Mosquitoes In High-Security Lab" BUT!! It points to the blurred boundary between labs and their outsides: 'release' is usually reserved for moving outside the lab.

I’m proposing appointing a Special Coordinator to examine and consult on the impact of emerging issues and new technologies on the CD’s agenda - important that we horizon scan and adapt.
