We'll have more about this tomorrow, but this week's Nature has a massive section looking at what the next 15 years could hold for information technology. Articles include Vernor Vinge talking about computers and creativity, Declan Butler on the future evolution of sensor networks, and Roger Brent and Jehoshua Bruck examining the intersection of biological science and computation.
Best of all, the full set of articles are available for free, supported in part by Microsoft's Toward 2020 Science project.
It's a fascinating collection of stories, well worth taking the time to read.
(Thanks for the tip, Declan)
