Not blogging much this summer. TED’ster Thomas Dolby pointed me to a 2010 TED Fellow who deserves attention. From Rachel Armstrong:
We are experiencing a renaissance and a change in the cultural conditions of science and technology where the information that was discovered as a result of twentieth-century science is being re-synthesized. Scientists need to work outside their own areas of expertise to make new technologies that are pertinent to the twenty-first century and to collaborate, both with other scientific disciplines and the arts and humanities. This is an opportunity for us to reconnect with each other, decide what the most important issues facing humanity are and how we may address this with the responsible use of new technologies.
