    if we could totally program a new synthetic cell, not even using any base DNA, we could "program" a cell to multiply in a certain way and respond to certain stymulus. this way we could have organisms that would work as nanotech but they would multiply. if they multiplied asexually, than you would get exact copies of the original cell/nanotech. they could be programmed much the same way as an unmanned vehicle. it would be instinctive for it to do certain jobs, such as cleaning the toilet or keeping input/output contacts clean.

    The potential for electronic augmentation, plant/mammal/insect gene mixing and nanotechnology, combining them all to together is simply imense, too much to comprehend.
    50 years time the world will be unrecogniseable
    its incredibly exiting and yet way more dangerous.

    Excellent points. It is essential that we do not let the excitement lead to unconstrained enthusiasm, leading to lack of caution and thus to realisation of those dangers.
