Last week, at the Singularity University Hollywood Executive Program held at Fox Studios, I had the privilege of sharing some of my thoughts about synthetic biology to an all-star crowd. I was the bridge between a fanciful Ray Kurzweil, who shared his thoughts on the technological singularity, and the matter-of-fact Craig Venter, who discussed the world done to make the synthetic cell in 2010. After Craig finished taking questions, I got an opportunity to grab him and Vint Cerf and drop by the photo studio. I just couldn’t resist having TJ, our photographer, capture the father of the internet and the father of synthetic life connecting. I can’t think of two other gentlemen that have so inspired my work!
