Been Quiet Here, hasn’t it.

Transitlab has always been the sometimes blog, the blog that i did when I have Time, Inclination and Energy. Thats why it has been so quiet. So few times has this been true. Don’t be surprised if there is a flurry of posts, as I clear backlogs of thoughts in journals and documentation of shows. I haven’t actually been so unbusy….my projects┬áshows that I have been around a few places.

My idea is to try and make interesting, or if not interesting at least useful posts.

Topics I am interested in writing about are super varied. From machine learning to bio printing.

Actually, however I love research, so please leave a comment on something you are interested in, and I will see what I can do!

Biohackers, Biopunks and others

“Biohacking is the practice of engaging biology with the hacker ethic. Biohacking encompasses a wide spectrum of practices and movements ranging from “Grinders” who design and install do-it-yourself body-enhancements such as magnetic implants to do-it-yourself biologists who conduct at-home gene sequencing.”
[[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biohacking]]

Broadly, I can see three main types

grinder: body flesh hacker magnets in fingers
quantified self people: tracking their life, non-invasive
diybio: hacking life in a petri dish
