    Well, you can either keep your head in the sand and pretend that that your DNA is somehow always going to be private (ignoring the fact that you leave lots of it around and it is only really cost issues preventing anyone interested from sequencing it), or you could just accept reality and just make your genome public *now* and help science. A growing number of people like George Church, Jim Watson, Craig Venter, Esther Dyson, and Stephen Pinker have already made their genomes public. Your genome isn’t a password. At best it’s a public key.
