Congress is thinking about thinking

"Further out, scientists envision development of "bio-enhancement" nanoproducts that would give people greater strength, better vision and perhaps even computer-assisted thinking -- goals that raise ethical issues that already are 'very much on Congress's mind,' (White House science adviser John) Marburger said."

The Washington Post

Blogger's Note: "Computer-assisted thinking." That sounds even more imaginative than the "wrongheaded" nanobots Marburger denounced a year ago along with the "imaginative commentators" who focused on them.
