Summary
"Biotechnology and digital information technology are both meta-technologies, radically different from industrial technologies because they so vastly expand human degrees of freedom. While the convergence of computing and communication technologies dominated the 20th century, convergence of the meta-technologies of biological and digital information will shape the 21st. The effects of this convergence are already being seen in trends in the law, economics, culture, and society" -- P. [4] of cover
