Chinese Gene-Edited Baby

I don't really have much of an opinion about it beyond 'that's interesting'.

I don't really hold with all the sound and fury about the ethics of the thing and even less with the idea that there's something questionable about trying to gengineer humans to be better than we are.

I don't know that it will effect the future of genetic engineering in any significant way since it is just one part of a huge ongoing endeavor. Barring some immediately obvious problem or improvement, it's also not clear how the genetic tweaks in question will impact the lives of the children in any significant way unless a deliberate effort is made to test their resistance to HIV.
