MIT Geeks

After reading this morning's wall to wall depressing news in the papers, I remembered an article I read last year in Discover magazine that had me talking for ages. Really, the people around me were getting fed up, especially when I couldn't find the piece to share. Well, I finally found it online, here.

It's stories like this that make me feel a little better about the future. It relates that the future brain trusts are using their mega-intelligence for good, rather than evil. More and more, the nerdiest of nerds at places like MIT are refusing the big bucks dangled by military concerns and instead thinking globally and filtering out the noise of concerns who seek only to conquer and control.

It's worth a read.
