TIME magazine assembled some of the smartest people they know to identify the trends that are most likely to affect our future. What they got was a fascinating discussion about religion, technology and politics and why no one's golf scores seem to be getting any better.
I think this was my favorite quote from the article:
The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.
~ Esther Dyson
