The question of how to best manage scientific and technological potential becomes more complex by the day. For example, the cost of pursuing sophisticated biological research has diminished to the point where a viable "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY) community has manifested, offering both the benefits if crowd-sourced solutions and the challenges of active governance, policing and security risks. How does one engage with an unbounded community of independently funded scientists addressing complex research with sometimes potentially perilous consequences?
