Looking Toward 2007: What's Next?
Technology: A year that saw innovations like the One Laptop Per Child machine and the Lifestraw go mainstream also saw both the first serious applications of carbon nanotubes and the first real attempts at regulating nanotechnology. Medical and public health breakthroughs are offering tantalizing glimpses of a world freed from HIV/AIDS and other major killers, while simultaneously bringing into sharper light the massive danger posed by emerging epidemic diseases like Bird Flu. And our understanding of the planet and the universe continue to expand, bringing a new sense of wonder as well as a more dire understanding of the troubles we've brought on our planet's natural systems.
