Talks This Week (and Optional Blogs)

There will be no blog post required this week.

I invite all of you to attend one, or both, of these events at the Ethics Center this week. They’re rather loosely connected to “technology and the senses” (genetically modified food, long-distance communication).

If you’d like, you may write an extra post (or two) about either event. Aim for a minimum of 400 words and try to provide a general overview of the evening, similar to a review you might read in the Wheel. Who were the speakers, and what did they present? What was the Q&A like? What did the event leave you thinking about? Due on Sunday, Nov. 9.
