Speculative fiction no longer?

Gattaca has just been posted in full on Hulu. It's one of my favorite science fiction films, a distopia in which genetic engineering divides the world into biological haves and have nots, and everyone's life is decided at birth, based entirely on their genes.

In unrelated news, a company in Boulder, Colorado, has just started offering to test children for a genetic marker associated with different kinds of athletic performance.
