Brain Enhancement

The Ethics of Brain Enhancement from the New York Times strikes home in a distinct "the future is now" sci-fi sense.
"The main purpose is to try to learn things, to get experience, to write papers, to do experiments. So in that case if you can do it better because you've got some drug on board, that would on the face of things seem like a plus."

Tweaking brain chemistry is something that many people try to do, but Johann Hari doesn't know anything about what people are doing in that area. He just ordered some shit from a dodgy internet pharmacy, figured since it was hard to get it must be good, and sent it down the hatch. All Provigil does is keep you awake. It doesn't make you smarter or increase your memory.

There are more effective and safer ways of increasing your intelligence and memory, and they're discussed here.
