11:00:51SLackerSat Batra: I thought people were going to show up
11:00:56SLackerLucifer Darrow: The topic this week is "The ethics of human augmentation"
11:01:25SLackerLucifer Darrow: This was inspired by a panel discussion at the recent Transvision 06
11:01:34SLackerLucifer Darrow: Specificially something Dr J mentioned
11:01:59SLackerLucifer Darrow: He compared imminent tech enhancements to weapons
11:02:31SLackerLucifer Darrow: He noted that we already place restrictions on what weapons people can have because "we all agree that some people shouldn't have too much power over others"
11:02:44SLackerSat Batra: specially bigsin there
11:02:46WWSeems to me society has already embraced human augmentation and put their collective stamp of ethical approval on it....ie. Viagra
11:02:50SLackerLucifer Darrow: Is the analogy valid?
11:03:00SLackerBiGSiN Wormser: heh
11:03:08SLackerBiGSiN Wormser: so wait one sec
11:03:10SLackerLucifer Darrow: If so, for which kinds of augmentation?
11:03:31SLackerSat Batra: huh
11:03:34SLackerLucifer Darrow: Obviously we allow corrective tech like eyeglasses and hearing aids
