Here is the transcript of an interview I conducted today for our next assignment.

Me: What is biotechnology to you? What does it mean to you?

Jon: I think it is any technology that shares a relationship with any biological system. When I think of biotechnology, I think of nanotechnology, sanitation, pacemakers, and stem-cell research.

Me: Are you in favor of industrial research in this field?

Jon: Sure, just think it needs to be done ethically.

Me: Can you say why you feel this way?

Jon: I feel that any field of technology is neither good nor bad. All technology has the ability to help humanity and that same technology possesses the ability to destory us as well. But as for biotechnology, if it is implented ethically, I feel that the benefits outweigh the possible risks.

Me: What is your major?

Jon: Civil engineering.
