Firstly, a key criticism of DTC genetic testing – that it could harm customers by providing them with disease risk information they were unprepared to deal with – was seriously undermined by a survey of over 2,000 recipients of DTC genetic disease risk profiles published last month in the New England Journal of Medicine, which showed no evidence for increased anxiety as a result of obtaining genetic testing results. That fits with previous studies showing that disclosure of increased genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease has no detectable effect on anxiety or depression levels. While long-term follow-up studies must still be done, the evidence now available indicates that early adopters of consumer genetic testing are at minimal risk of psychological harm as a result; and the critics of the industry have lost one crucial strategic edge in their campaign of fear, uncertainty and doubt.
SOPA, of course, died. But UGNazi lived on. They took down the websites for the states of California and Washington and the cities of New York and Washington D.C.

In the mid-20th century, the discovery of drugs that could alleviate depression pushed the scientific consensus toward Hippocrates and away from the Platonic idea and his famous standard bearer, Sigmund Freud. If biochemical dysfunction caused depression, and scientists could correct it with drugs, maybe talk therapy had been a big, unnecessary detour.
The niftiest part of the system is the television component that is lacking on many other players. The problem, of course, is that you won’t find Friends or Ed anywhere on the dial. Instead, the dozen channels available range from the extreme sports channel all the way down to a short file channel.

“We saw in World Without Oil, there’s this additive process where people would go, ‘You know, you’re right, that would happen in an oil crisis,'” Eklund said, speaking of the way that the sharing of ideas about the future could result in a meaningful discussion of future possibilities. He described it as an “organic exploration” of ideas. “We’re looking for black swans. We’re looking for people who have an insight about the future. We want to have a place where they can, without fear of being laughed at or scorned, playfully present that idea.”
