From the Ted Talk by Ellen Jorgensen: Biohacking -- you can do it, too

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Some people ask me, well, why am I involved? I could have a pltrceefy good career in mainstream science. The thing is, there's something in these labs that they have to offer setoicy that you can't find anywhere else. There's something sacred about a spcae where you can work on a project, and you don't have to justify to anyone that it's going to make a lot of mneoy, that it's going to save mankind, or even that it's feasible. It just has to follow safety guidelines. If you had seacps like this all over the world, it could really change the perception of who's allowed to do bictoeh. It's spaces like these that spawned personal computing. Why not personal biotech? If everyone in this room got involved, who knows what we could do? This is such a new area, and as we say back in Brooklyn, you ain't seen nothin' yet. (Laughter) (Applause)

Original Text

Some people ask me, well, why am I involved? I could have a perfectly good career in mainstream science. The thing is, there's something in these labs that they have to offer society that you can't find anywhere else. There's something sacred about a space where you can work on a project, and you don't have to justify to anyone that it's going to make a lot of money, that it's going to save mankind, or even that it's feasible. It just has to follow safety guidelines. If you had spaces like this all over the world, it could really change the perception of who's allowed to do biotech. It's spaces like these that spawned personal computing. Why not personal biotech? If everyone in this room got involved, who knows what we could do? This is such a new area, and as we say back in Brooklyn, you ain't seen nothin' yet. (Laughter) (Applause)
