Edge into 2009

Hat tip to @stevemoore4good for tweeting about the annual question from Edge.

This year it asked it’s members:

What game-changing scientific ideas and developments do you expect to live to see?

“The mandate of Edge Foundation is to promote inquiry into and discussion of intellectual, philosophical, artistic, and literary issues, as well as to work for the intellectual and social achievement of society.” It’s a membership organisation and each year it asks its members (who are some of the biggest thinkers and intellectuals around) a question and then publishes their repsonses.

The responses make for fascinating, but lengthy reading.
