Some will argue that creating new life is the province of evolution and the deity, not of humans. But we have been creating new life forms for thousands of years, starting with the extraordinary creation of what Amman (personal communication, 2000) refers to as “genetic monsters” such as maize and wheat. These were created by our ancestors from either deliberate or spontaneous hybrids and are in effect new life forms with novel genomes that have founded whole civilizations. Many of our fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants have been created in similar ways.

From the discovery and early development of digital information technology in the 1960s, it has taken a mere four decades for information technology to be integrated into the lives of most people in both the developed and developing worlds. This technology is rapidly replacing mechanical devices for controlling aircraft and automobiles, and has vastly increased the capacity of individuals both to communicate with each other and to mine information on a global scale. Surveys of public views of digital technologies have consistently revealed that people perceive almost all aspects as highly beneficial and, not surprisingly, show real enthusiasm for any gadget that might either save time and money or provide entertainment, even though risks are associated with their use.
