Sports Enhancement and the Olympics August 5, 2008Posted by Matt Brown in Human Enhancement.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. Suffice to say things have been happening. One of those things is that I ‘ve been thinking about the direction I want to go with this and I’ve decided to make a change. I’ll still be writing about exercise and such but I’ll also be exploring the science behind alot of what I’ll talk about and the issues we’re facing in the modern world. With many new technologies emerging that have the potential to radically alter the human body in a number of ways, we will be facing many big debates and decisions in the coming years over the effects of these technologies on sport and on our society at large. On that note, please take the time to read this article I found on the upcoming Olympics. It makes some very interesting points on how human enhancement technologies are rapidly changing how athletes are able to compete and how it might be time for us to change our views on “doping” and other enhancement technologies.
