Zany NYT column comparing knowledge-enhancement drugs and the internet.
Thanks for pointing out this interesting piece, Rex. Our society is so receptive to human enhancement -- except in sport. Why is it considered cheating to chemically enhance your performance on the running track but not on the career track? Aren't athletes just trying to get ahead in their job and make breaks for themselves just like the rest of us? It can't be long before pharmacological and/or technological enhancement become allowed in sport to satisfy the public's appetite for an ever greater performance spectacle. I'll be the first to admit that the steroid-using home run heroes of the last decade brought much needed excitement to baseball.
