Happy 2007 with the annual question of Edge.org!

The literary agent John Brockman, editor of the Edge.org website, asks each year a question to representatives of the third culture, unifying the artificial divisions of scientific and humanistic cultures. This year’s question is “What are you optimistic about?” Reading the stimulating and often provocative answers is a favorite passtime of mine: I put them on my mobile phone, and read them one by one at any occasion.
