Genetic hobbyists?

I’m all about tinkering. Although I don’t have time for it now, when I was younger, I was into personal robotics, and even assembled a HERO-1 at one point. Will my kids get to play with designing their own organisms? If creating a new organism is possible in the lab today, doesn’t it seem like it might be child’s play in five or ten years? More people ought to be thinking about the long-term consequences, as Bill Joy has.
