Juan Enriquez: Your online life, permanent as a tattoo


 

What if Andy Warhol had it wrong, and instead of being famous for 15 minutes, we’re only anonymous for that long? In this short talk, Juan Enriquez looks at the surprisingly permanent effects of digital sharing on our personal privacy. He shares insight from the ancient Greeks to help us deal with our new “digital tattoos.”

Juan Enriquez thinks and writes about profound changes that genomics will bring in business, technology, and society. A broad thinker who studies the intersection of science, business and society, Mr. Enriquez has a talent for bridging disciplines to build a coherent look ahead. Enriquez was the founding director of the Harvard Business School Life Sciences Project, and has published widely on topics from the technical (global nucleotide data flow) to the sociological (gene research and national competitiveness), and was a member of Celera Genomics founder Craig Venter’s marine-based team to collect genetic data from the world’s oceans.

Watch his talk, and find out what the link between tatoos, big data, immortality and the Greeks is.
