…about The Edge Question.
In reading through the best and brightest in science, business and technology write about much more long-term and deep reasons for optimism than my list, I was struck by a couple things. First, the lack of discussion of Web 2.0 and social media (the closest is an excellent essay by Kai Krause at the bottom of page 6 and Chris Anderson’s piece on page 11). And it’s interesting to note how many scientists have contempt for religion.
Still, it’s worth your time to check it out.
Oh, and I’d like to add that I’m optimistic about global warming and how it will enable me to buy super cheap vineyard land here in Minnesota and make world class Minnesota riesling and pinot noir in about 20 years 😉
