Never mind the biologists, here come the biopunks!

Morgan Meyer


A new, strange breed of people has come to life. They live in major European, US and Asian cities. They provoke dreams and fears, they talk science and politics. Their object of interest is life; and hacking and tinkering with biology is what they do. They come, in fact, in various guises and call themselves "biohackers", "biopunks", and "DIY biologists". Who are these biohackers and biopunks and how many of them are there? Do they have a tangible influence on science, politics and society? Which visions of science, technology and society do they promote? What do they want to change? Which new institutions, forums, places, activities, objects, do they want to create?
