Hi open,
You describe our issues around trust and control, so so well.
I reckon if you were to tell a child " dont worry about nature
getting messed up, we can make robot bees " etc. They may well
fall about laughing ! Sophisticated adults take this stuff seriously !

So seriously in fact, it has spawned the http://2045.com/ initiative. Can you credit this stuff and some of the people endorsing it ! Lets hope we stop being so silly.
