I have been working for years to find a way to stop Google from “re-incorporating” me and other people like me into the company that is killing the Internet.
And I’m now in a position to do it.
In the first few months of 2016, I wrote to the CEOs of the biggest tech companies, asking them to address the growing number of people with the same genetic makeup as me.
I wrote that I wanted to “create a new generation of creators”.
My hope was that by focusing on the people with whom I shared a genetic makeup, companies like Facebook and Google could create products that could help people like us.
But the response was overwhelming: Google has yet to reply.
The story was not unique.
“Google is not only a massive corporate power, it is also a giant bully,” says Gopal Krishna, founder and executive director of The Center for Social Entrepreneurship (TSSE).
It was a response that many companies had been hoping for.
Over the past decade, we’ve seen a flood of products that promise to help people with rare or non-functional genetic variations.
But few companies have been able to match the scale of what Facebook and other giants like Google have done.
A new generation, it seems, needs to start creating new products to help us.
“The more people with unique genetic variations that we have in our gene pool, the more people are able to be part of a company that will grow the internet,” Krishna says.
“It is about building a network of people that is diverse and that we are all connected.”
The problem It seems, though, that while the number of companies that can successfully replicate the genetic makeup of their users is growing, the number that can actually help people who share those genetic differences has shrunk.
There are now just seven companies that are using a combination of gene testing and social media to help companies like Google and Facebook “see what’s really happening in the world”.
“It is a huge problem,” Krishna tells me.
“We are trying to create products to make it more efficient, more convenient and more affordable for people to do this.
But it’s a huge challenge.
The way people are connecting is changing, and we need to change as a society.”
This is one of the reasons Krishna is worried about what might happen if Facebook and others like it replicate our genetic makeup.
Krishna thinks we have created a “gene pool of the people” that Facebook, Google and other companies are not creating.
“Facebook and Google are creating a gene pool of our genetic make-up,” he says.
We’ve become a global gene pool.
If you can be the world’s largest genetic profile, you can create products for your company.
But you can’t create products based on your genetic makeup.”
We’re creating a global genetic profile.
If you can be the world’s largest genetic profile you can create products for your company.
So how can we help solve this problem?
Well, it starts with understanding the genetic profile of our users.
What is a genetic profile?
It’s a person’s unique DNA sequence that tells their genes apart.
The more unique a person has that sequence, the bigger their impact on society.
Our genes are the key to our identity and our identity is the key for us to be able to interact with the world.
“When we have a diverse gene pool and the genes are all very similar, we can do a lot of things,” Krishna explains.
For example, a person who has a slightly different DNA sequence may be more likely to be male than someone with the exact same DNA sequence.
Or, a woman with a slightly more male DNA sequence will be more inclined to be a mother than someone whose sequence is almost exactly the same.
This DNA is also more likely in the eyes of people in power.
It can influence how they see the world and how they behave.
When you combine this DNA with other unique genetic traits like the presence of certain immune cells, we call them “genetic profiles”.
A DNA profile is an amalgamation of the DNA of hundreds of millions of people.
One gene on our genetic profile can have a large impact on how we behave.
“What are the next steps to take to make sure that the next generation of people has the best chance of surviving, in particular for people of African descent?” “
We need to think about the future of our DNA,” Krishna points out.
“What are the next steps to take to make sure that the next generation of people has the best chance of surviving, in particular for people of African descent?”
We are creating a global genetic profile.
If we create a genomic profile then the next generation of people can survive.
