'This time, let's veer into an area wherein I actually know a thing or
two!  The matter of whether humanity might someday... or even should...
meddle in other creatures on this planet and bestow upon them the
debatable "gift" of full sapience -- the ability to argue, ponder, store
information, appraise, discuss, create, express and manipulate tools, so
that they might join us in the problematic task of being worthy
planetary managers.'

Brin returns to one of his favourite topics.

Share and enjoy,
