Fm-2030

A futurist who changed his name to FM-2030 died last weekend of pancreatic cancer. FM-2030 was originally named F.M. Esfandiary. In 1977, he predicted scientists would one day correct people's genetic flaws. In 1980, he predicted telecommunications technology would change the way people shop. Noah talks with Flora Schnall, an attorney and longtime friend of FM-2030.
