This is a super interesting STS-type take on the 737-max crashes. In this section particularly, I can see the same sociotechnical mechanics at work in biology; not in Indonesia specifically, but many places bioengineering is taking off.

I’m just wondering whether this is a chance for testing various theories around cooling, and whether such evidence is seen as necessary to collect for debates on geoengineering.

And here's the academic article .. the tension is that gene drive is a global technology and trust is seems to be nationally based: Does the U.S. public support using gene drives in agriculture? And what do they want to know?

I haven’t seen this level of scare-mongering in a while.

In a new piece for I explore the ways emerging technologies change the threat of CBRN terrorism. Bottom-line: CBRN acquisition and use is easier, but key barriers remain.

Hey : If you were to name three STS people you think should be heard in a conversation on "Next Steps for Functional Genomics", who would they be? Bonus points for naming women and under-represented groups.
