BioHacking, Hacking and the Future of Humanity
August 6th ,2009
The skills we have come to associate with hacking - seeing things
cleanly and for the first time every time we look, innovative and
creative thinking, cross-disciplinary knowledge, and a refusal to accept
consensus reality, insisting on making things new, enabling life to do
were unanticipated ... and cool ... these skills apply to biohacking as
well as hacking information and communications systems.
Biohacking is hacking the genome, the organism, the species, to create
new possibilities. Beyond enhancements of humanity-of-the-moment, it
aims to generate new qualities and capabilities. Biohacking takes the
work of corporate and government labs and puts it back in the garage
where it belongs. Biohacking aims to create new organisms, DNA that
enables living creatures to do new things. Biohacking is the new
frontier of hacking. And security issues are ... non-trivial.
This talk illuminates how current and future developments in information
systems, biotechnology, and nanotechnology suggest ways human identity
will be hacked, altered, and enhanced. The evolution of post-human
is in the hands of a new generation. Does that make you feel secure?
This talk sounds like science fiction but isn't. It delivers insights
the next chapter of human civilization.
Richard Thieme (www.thiemeworks.com <http://www.thiemeworks.com/>
<?http://www.thiemeworks.com/>) is an author and professional speaker
focused on the deeper implications of
technology, religion, and science for twenty-first century life. He
speaks on creativity, how to reinvent ourselves as individuals and
organizations, and the likely futures we will create.
Thieme's creative use of the Internet to reach global markets has earned
accolades around the world. He is a member of the "cyber avant-garde,"
according to CNN ... "a prominent American techno-philosopher" according
to LAN Magazine (Australia) ... "a father figure for online culture,"
according to the (London) Sunday Telegraph."
Thieme has spoken eleven times for Def Con and served as speaker and
panelist numerous times for the Black Hat Briefings. He has also spoken
for Toor Con, PumpCon, Interz0ne West, SecurityOPUS, Xmas Con (New
Orleans 2600), RubiCon, HiverCon (Dublin), ShmooCon, NotaCon and
RootFest. He has also been the keynote speaker at a number of prominent
security conferences worldwide.
At DefCon VIII, he moderated a panel that included the Assistant
Secretary of Defense, Dir. of Information and Infrastructure Assurance
for DOD, and the Dir. of the Federal Computer Incident Response Team who
came to "dialogue" with more than 5000 computer hackers. He was invited
to moderate because, according to a National Security Agency officer,
"You're the only one in the room with the acceptance and respect of both
the hacking community and the Feds."
