Carnival of Tomorrow

Saturday, October 15, 2005
The Carnival of Tomorrow is up. I found these especially interesting:

  • A new treatment for certain cancers, notably neuroblastoma multiformae. I lost a loved one to neuroblastoma multiforme, an extremely agressive brain tumor, some years ago; by coincidence, the principal investigator, John Sampson, is an old acquaintance from my time at Duke.

  • The Whole Brain Atlas, a visual atlas of brain imaging.

  • A surprising example of real progress toward the flying car we've been promised for so long — and an example of its use that, perhaps, makes a better case for flying cars than The Jetsons ever did.

Read the, as they say, whole thing.

More than flying cars I want conveyor belt sidewalks like Popular Mechanics were always promising us back in the 50s & 60s. I feel so cheated every time I have to move my feet to get somewhere.
