Sure, making stuff accessible as possible... But not sure eliminating
ethics is a good idea. Hackers (in the traditional sense, not the
sponsored "maker" sense) have always had a very well developed sense
of ethics. Taking that spirit to biology is very important, otherwise
it's just a big-pharma farm team.
