Knowing the stuff we’re made of has exonerated the innocent & convicted the guilty. It’s opened new horizons in medicine. But, it’s also raised some unnerving questions... Tomorrow, we'll explore the ethical issues involved as DNA sequencing becomes more advanced. 📷: Joo Nath

I think it takes 3+ years of Residence at the same address in King's to have your jury card pulled. Rivers of gentrification + nomadism keep many hipsters moving along corridors every year or so. And maybe they're also ignoring summons at their folk's address back in Ohio?

Nothing like the King’s County jury duty waiting room to remind you that hipster Brooklyn is a tiny slice of the borough’s overall demographics. (Or maybe they’re all too cool for jury duty?)

I love this pilgrimage. The question is: did you drink bottled water or tap?

Wow. Not just the handwriting — also the colors! I can’t quite make out what it actually says. Can we get a transcription?

Latest episode of my new podcast, American Innovations, just went live -- it's all about the race to decode the human genome. We spent most of the past week at #1 on the Apple podcasts list; I'm thrilled so many folks seem to be enjoying it...

Those who can hear yanny: put on your white and gold garments and ascend the nearest rooftop at 3:33 pm (yanny time) and we will choose the form of our new universe and star meat bodies together. It is time.

Hey! So this is a thing I've been working on for quite some time and it's very nearly cooked - a deep dive into over 100 years of futurism and art.

I agree it is very significant. (Working on a long piece about all this now.) But to me, there are way too many fundamental differences with traditional libertarian values to group them under the same umbrella. It distorts what is actually happening out there, good and bad.
