Definitely a must-read.

The Edge released the results of its annual World Question Center 2009. 150 contributors, among writers, philosophers, psychologists, biologists, astronomers and physicists, trying to answer this question: “What game-changing scientific ideas and developments do you expect to live to see?”

The results are very interesting. From new teaching-and-learning technologies to scientific breakthroughs, from technological jumps in robotics and AI to green tech advancements, from bright ideas (“a very very good battery”) to dark nuclear clouds. They are all very good.

But my favorite is still the one from Stefano Boeri, architect, teaching at Politecnico of Milan:

“Discovering that someone from the future has already come to visit us.”
