Edge annual question 2007:
WHAT ARE YOU OPTIMISTIC ABOUT? WHY?
As an activity, as a state of mind, science is fundamentally
optimistic. Science figures out how things work and thus can make them
work better. Much of the news is either good news or news that can be
made good, thanks to ever deepening knowledge and ever more efficient
and powerful tools and techniques. Science, on its frontiers, poses
more and ever better questions, ever better put.
What are you optimistic about? Why? Surprise us!
