edge.org publishes its annual question posed to its members.
edge.org is an online sort of a digital roundtable for really smart &
famous types; a flameless metafilter for the intellectually arrived.
Once each year, a global question is posed to its noteworthy members. This year's ?? is: Suppose GWB has appointed you National Science Advisor and then asks you "What are the pressing scientific issues for the nation and the world, and what is your advice on how I can begin to deal with them?"
Their's a boatload of interesting, insightful, sometimes humorous pieces written by a bunch of people. F'rinstance: Kurzweil on cloned tissue spare parts
, Clifford Pickover on quantum dots
, but among the most insightful is Alan Alda
