Humanity 2.0 is often discussed here at Anthrobotic, and this here from Juan is yet another proclamation that we’re on the verge of truly owning skills that will allow us to design ourselves and those who come after us.

There’s a thought provoking interview on genomics and other tech after the jump – have a read, yo.
